ESN TalTech International Club
ESN TalTech IC is a society set up by the Student’s Council of Tallinn University of Technology. It is also a section of Erasmus Student Network (ESN), an international student organization set up to help exchange students.
Our mission is to help foreign students on settling in into the Estonian lifestyle and make their stay in Estonia as smooth and pleasant as possible. Every exchange student has an opportunity to apply for a personal tutor who will help international students with any questions they might have, providing advice and answers to any social or educational problems that international students might have.
The mission of ESN TalTech International Club (IC) is to integrate international students into Estonian life. ESN TalTech International Club was officially founded in 2003 and consists of 20-30 active students of TalTech. Tutors are mostly volunteers, who are either international or local degree students in TalTech.
IC tutors are happy, open-minded, friendly and helpful young people who are prepared to assist foreign students. Most of them have experienced themselves how it feels to get settled in a foreign country. Your tutor will pick you up at the airport, harbour, railway or bus station and will take you to your residence if needed.
During Orientation Days, our tutors will introduce you to the university campus, give some advice about staying in Estonia and guide you around the educational system of our University. In addition, there will be plenty of activities such as excursions, seminars, tournaments and trips, organized for students by IC. The variety of events is large, so every student could find something interesting for them. Traditional and most popular events are currently International Dinner, and trips to Lapland and St.Petersburg.
Throughout the semester several events are organised for all the international students (exchange and degree students) staying at Tallinn University of Technology. Also, we are always open for local students, if you want to join our events or the club, we are happy to have you.
