Study Visits for International Students

The aim of the Study Visits to Estonian Research Institutions is to make Estonian research accomplishments, institutions and researchers visible to international students currently studying in Estonia.

The academic, cultural and personal background of the international students is varied. Learning about Estonian research makes it easier for them to connect with the society, become more aware and think about their academic interests. Furthermore, the visits demonstrate the high-level, cooperative, international and accessible research environment in Estonia. Thanks to the size and flexibility of Estonian institutions, there is a good opportunity to engage in inter-disciplinary cooperation and research in any field. Also, it is important to notice the potential of international students’ to be the future peers of Estonian researchers.

The visits are organized by The Estonian Research Council in cooperation with local Erasmus Student Networks (ESN) – ESN Tallinn and ESN Tartu.
