Additional Information

QUARANTINE UPDATE: Depending on the situation 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. You will take online courses relating to your specialization, and have video calls/mentoring with the CEO.
