I liked my exchange semester very much because of the beauty of Estonia and a great nature. I appreciate Tartu for its coziness and friendly people. Estonian Aviation Academy is a great school and especially I loved its familiar atmosphere and the modernity of equipment in studies.

Tartu was my home for almost 5 months and living here was amazing. I loved the modern building of academy, with own sauna, gym, canteen etc. But it was not just about the facilities. The lectures were given at the highest level, focused not only on knowledge, but also development of logical thinking and professional performance. I really enjoyed the time spent in Estonia.
