Future international students can get to know the university by student shadowing

The University of Tartu is inviting future international students to come student shadowing and live one day as a university student. Current students are encouraged to take shadows for a day and introduce them to the curriculum they are studying. 

The student shadowing project allows a prospective student to spend a day with a current student, exploring their field of interest in depth. This experience provides invaluable insight into what studying a chosen subject truly involves. Participants can shadow both bachelor’s and master’s students. To take part, interested students need to register on the University of Tartu’s website and select a suitable curriculum. 

Future international students are encouraged to register for this unique opportunity in case they plan to travel to Estonia before applying to any of the international degree programmes. This is an excellent chance to experience the special atmosphere of the University of Tartu.  

Furthermore, current students at the University of Tartu are encouraged to join the project to introduce university life to prospective international students. By sharing their experiences and introducing their academic and social life, they play a crucial role in guiding future students. Current students can register on the university’s website to take shadows. As a token of appreciation, students who have hosted a shadow will receive university memorabilia as a gift.
