NAME: Anastasiia Babash
Why did you choose to study this programme?
I have always been interested in eternal questions such as how our world works and how human thinks, so I chose philosophy for my Bachelor studies in Ukraine and after finishing I realized that philosophy has become my real passion. I really enjoy how philosophy develops a wide world view, a critical thinking, and respect to different positions. I think that nowadays, in the epoch of technologies people really need all these skills to better understand information, to wisely choose what believe and how to rationally argument your own position. I also think that everyone earlier or later asks oneself what is the sense of life and how we should live, and only philosophy can help with this questions.
I have my best friend from Estonia and she always described me this country as really beautiful and cozy, so I decided to travel here to see it with my own eyes and…I fell in love with this culture, language, nature, and people. So I promised myself that one day I will return and here I am.
I also studied in the International Summer School at the University of Tartu last summer and was impressed by the high level of teaching, interesting materials, and real international student atmosphere of the town. I was also impressed by the amount of the scholarships for the international students.
