Who am I?

I am Emilia, 26-year old student from the University of Jyväskylä. My major subject is Speech Communication, and I’ve done minor studies for example in social politics and gender studies.

How I learnt about Eurocampus?Emilia_Nikkinen_600

I really wanted to do another exchange after an amazing semester at the University of Stockholm 2014. The department coordinator of my home university suggested me the Eurocampus program in Tallinn after I told her that I’d like to get new perspectives to communication.

What were my motivations to apply?

I saw the course plan and even though the schedule looked very tight and intensive, I found the contents super interesting and diverse. I also wanted to find ways to combine my studies in speech communication and gender studies, and intercultural communication seemed to do just that! I also never had visited Tallinn before (believe it or not!).

 What are my first experiences at Tallinn University?

Tallinn University seems like a modern and creative environment to study. We only have lectures in one classroom, so Mare will become more familiar than any other part of the campus. I’m happy with the cafeteria serving only vegetarian food, and I already went to see one Estonian movie at SuperNova!

    A Mad Good Time In Tallinn

    You may be asking yourself what to do during the cold winter nights or long summer nights in order to destress from the courses during the week. I am excited to say that the best night you can have in Tallinn is participating in the Mad Monk’s Pub Crawl, Tallinn. For just €15 you get one hour of all the beer and cider you can drink, free entrance into a night club (usually Club Hollywood), a leaving shot and welcome shots at all of the bars that we go to.

    One of the many reasons that students choose to study abroad in Tallinn, Estonia is because of the unique character of the country and the ability to travel freely to other European Union Member States. While this may be an underlying desire in choosing Tallinn University the topic of the integration of the European Union is not often discussed amongst the students. Thankfully, Tallinn University allowed students and members of the community to attend a conference titled Europe in Hard Times; What’s to be Done?

    Beginning of the University studies

    Student blog

    When I first applied to University, I knew it would be difficult and it would not be an easy job to graduate. I made a vow to myself that I would work really hard and spend my spare time doing school work, after all I did not know anybody from my University before going there.
