International students have an important role in Estonian universities by aiding the spread and development of science. Moreover, international students bring a fresh perspective and new methods and mechanisms to problem-solving. Not always, but sadly in many cases international students’ full potential remains unaccounted for due to the many difficulties that lie ahead when settling in Estonia.
University of Tartu is one of the nine European universities taking part in the three-year-long project of ENLIGHT. Every year the ENLIGHT project, which centres around students and international co-operation, has a theme. This time around, it is “inclusivity”. To gather momentum on the university level, we have also decided to partake with an educational policy campaign of our own centred around the same theme – “inclusivity”.
