Would you like to step closer to Estonian culture, to discover new places in and around Tartu and meet new people? We start again on 18th of July 2020, so register soon!
Join the culture crash course Culture Gate that lasts for around 3 months and is free of charge. The course gives you the opportunity to get to know Estonian history, Tartu cultural symbols, visit different museums, expand your network, discuss your experience of relocation and keep up to date with what is happening in Tartu – and much more.
The course is designed to be interactive and dynamic. In addition to getting an insight into the culture, you´ll expand your network.
