Moving to Estonia has been an incredible experience for me after living and studying in countries like Trinidad & Tobago and Denmark. While universities in many European capitals might be better equipped with sprawling campuses and over thousands of pupils, what has been lovely about the Estonian Business School is its size. Studying at any university poses its own set of challenges on any student, but at EBS, because of the smaller and more intimate sized classes, it is easier to learn and communicate with the lecturers, in terms of getting feedback and additional help with difficult material. We have had local lecturers and lecturers from various parts of the world, often providing us with thought-provoking points-of-views enabling us to broaden our horizons, but more importantly the majority of them truly care about helping their students. I particularly like this approach to teaching, because it encourages us as students to be more innovative and develop independent thinking.

Estonia is very unique in many ways, as it is still a young economy and has to compete in a global market; it also provides an excellent point of reference during classes! Apart from that, Tallinn is a vivacious, happening city with loads of opportunity and fun things to do. There’s a fairly large international community and getting to know people is very easy as the people here are kind and friendly. The Old Town itself is beautiful with a myriad of medieval buildings, parks and cobble stone streets that make you feel as if you’ve travelled back in time.

Compared to many other European cities, Tallinn is still great value for money and studying here is very reasonable as EBS provides all of our teaching materials and is adequately equipped, providing access to computer labs and databases until late evening and even during weekends. I’d recommend coming to study in Tallinn to anyone looking for quality education in a safe and happening environment and where taking a trip to St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Helsinki or Riga can be done with great ease, as EBS often arranges fun-packed study trips throughout the school year.
