Internationalisation at home
Possibilities for Internationalisation
In our globalised world, any international experience has a priceless value – it enables us to develop our social skills, widen our career prospects, broaden our horizons and cultural awareness and build relationships with people of different nationalities.
If for some reason it is not possible to go on studies abroad, then it is worth having a look at the possibilities for internationalisation and that are available at Tallinn University for students without having to leave your home university!
Free time and voluntary work
- International Club: Join Tallinn University International Club! The International Club brings together Estonian and international students to bring excitement into your life in Tallinn and at the university. The Club organises events and helps international students adjust to life in Tallinn. By joining the International Club you will be able to create new international contacts, gain valuable communication and counselling experience, practise languages and obtain skills in event organisation.
- Peer Support Programme and student buddies: Make new friends, learn about other cultures and practise your foreign language skills – become a student buddy for international students. Student buddies are students of Tallinn University who help international students settle in to local life, introduce local culture and help with university-related questions.
- Welcome events organised by academic units: During the orientation week, every academic unit organises a welcome event for their students, first-year students as well as students from other years. Participating in these events gives a good opportunity to create new relationships and make friends. Information about the welcome events can be found on the Orientation webpage at the beginning of the academic year.
- Socialising events and free time activities: Tallinn University International Club and Erasmus Student Network organise exciting events and get-togethers all year round, and in addition to their members and international students they also welcome local students who have interest in internationalisation. More information about the events is available on their Facebook page.
