Estonia-Russia relations bring US students to a study trip in Estonia
Until 10 January, a group of students from San Diego State University is visiting Estonia to participate in the international continuing learning programme of the UT Lifelong Learning Centre that gives an overview of the Estonia-Russia relations as well as the social and economic policies and future perspectives of both countries. The programme also deals with topics related to human rights.
“The international continuing education programme “Russia and Estonia in the European dimension” has been ordered by San Diego State University within the framework of long‑term cooperation,” said Margot Must, Senior Specialist at the UT Lifelong Learning Centre, adding that in the previous years the participants have highlighted the comprehensiveness of the programme and the competence of lecturers, so the cooperation will continue in the future.
The lectures are given by the teaching staff of the University of Tartu: Lecturer Heiko Pääbo, Professor Andrey Makarychev and visiting lecturers.
Besides academic lectures and seminars, participants can enjoy diverse cultural programme and visit various institutions in Tartu, Saint Petersburg, Narva and Tallinn.
“In addition to the programme ordered by San Diego State University, the University of Tartu organises short-term continuing education programmes throughout the year for several other universities in the USA and Japan. The number and scope of the offered programmes increases year by year. In our work with the participants of short-term courses and the international summer university, we also aim to generate a wish and motivation to come to study in the English-taught degree programmes of the university,” said Must.
