ESN Tallinn was founded in 2003 and first started to take care of Erasmus students studying at Tallinn Pedagogical University (current name Tallinn University). Erasmus was at that time the most popular and most successful educational exhange program and most of the incoming international students came here with Erasmus. As the number of Erasmus students and other foreign students in this university was small, then volunteers in ESN Tallinn decided to take care of exchange students also in other higher education institutions in Tallinn. Year by year there were more and more exchange students coming to all the universities in Tallinn - as a result the range of our activities and volunteers has risen and we are covering more and more students.

If you are studying as Erasmus or exchange student in Tallinn this semester, you should be joining our group ( and WhatsApp chat (! Why? Because it is the easiest way to keep yourself in the loop about the great happenings for international students in Tallinn!
