This summer, Tallinn University’s international summer school brought together a record number of participants. There were 430 people going to the lectures of Tallinn Summer School, coming from almost 60 different countries. Russia, Hong Kong, Estonia, South-Korea, Germany and the United States were the countries represented with the highest number of participants.

"We had the opportunity to get in touch with a different culture and a different country and to see new places also outside Tallinn. It was a really enjoyable period which I would recommend to everyone."

The main programme included 23 different courses, followed by two additional special courses for students from partner universities. The programme of our international summer school included language courses, creative workshops, as well as a variety of courses in humanities, social sciences and educational sciences. Most popular courses were Estonian, English and Russian languages and also the course “The Soviet Otherwise: Affects, Margins, and Imaginaries in the Late Soviet Era“, primarily designed for PhD students.

"I liked the mix between practical and theoretical aspects of game design. Overall the atmosphere in the class was very nice and cooperative."
