"I chose to study in Estonia, because first of all, Tartu is one of the 5 places in the world where it is possible to get degree in Semiotics. And second, I was in Tartu for exchange semester in 2012, and I fell in love with Estonia, Estonian mentality and nature. Tartu, in my opinion, is one of the most coziest student towns in Europe."
Daria, International Student Ambassador from Russia, is studying Semiotics
