Additional Information

QUARANTINE UPDATE: Depending on the situation in February, a 14-day quarantine may have to be adhered to. We can help with finding you suitable accommodation, and a place to quarantine safely. Since Estonia has been digital since the early 2000s, the country has a high number of remote workers, unlike many other countries. Working from home is common here. Hence, we have designed a study and training schedule to cover your first two weeks in Estonia, which can be easily taken from your own home.
