International Student Ambassadors (ISA) is a volunteer-based organization and was first established in 2012. We are international degree-seeking students studying at the UT.
We help prospective students get to know the university as well as lifestyle in Tartu. We can answer your questions or share real experiences of living and studying in Tartu. We make sure that students feel bonding between themselves and the university from the very beginning.
We voluntarily represent our countries and the international student community in Estonia and the University of Tartu abroad (at conferences, festivals, fairs). Through our experience, you can start planning your own studies at our university.
As for current students, we organize events that integrate international students with the locals as well as help them navigate their future study and career plan. We serve as a communication channel for international students to give feedback to the Student Council of the university.
Don’t hesitate to contact us and ask practical questions about studying or living in Estonia. Through our experience, you can start planning your own studies at our university!
