University of Tartu, Estonia
Country of origin: Pakistan
Study course: Master in Applied Measurement Science
Why did you decide to study abroad?
I did my Bachelor’s degree in Pakistan. I always wanted to have a world-class education and do research that will teach me how to serve humanity. It was my desire to have an international Master’s degree, and a different one which is not offered in Pakistan. Culture exchange is my passion; and I want to share my culture with students all over the world.
What made you decide on this university?
I applied to three different countries, including Italy, Finland, and Estonia. I was admitted to all of these countries; but the University of Tartu, Estonia offers the best course that was related to my previous education than the courses at other universities in other countries. So, I decided to come to the University of Tartu for a world-class education.
How is your experience of studying abroad?
I am really enjoying it right now; it is like my 2nd Home. An educational system is exceptional, very much adaptive, easy to understand, and, most importantly, much advanced compared to Pakistan. From day one, I liked the way it happened: teachers are supportive and help you to settle into the system. I love being here.
Why do you think others should not miss out on studying at your university
The university of Tartu offers more than 20 international degree programmes and more than 2,000 courses are in English. There are many versatile courses, like AMS ( applied measurement science), and many programs sponsored by Erasmus+; and students can get scholarships, for example, through the EACH program ( Excellence in Analytical Chemistry). The Estonian government also pays allowances to students to support their stay here. There are many other opportunities for getting scholarships, and the expenses in Estonia are not too high. Students can bear living expenses very easily.
The university of Tartu also has agreements with European Universities in other countries, where students can go to study as exchange students, having their expenses paid for by the University of Tartu. The university of Tartu is older than Harvard University and educates students from all over the world since 1632.
