We will uncover the facts about studying in Estonia, that many students may not know about. For example, Estonian Sign Language is a universal language that is used widely throughout the country. And learning Estonia Sign Language is highly encouraged for not only domestic students but for international students interested in studying in Estonia. The country has one of the most well-respected higher education institution systems and many postgraduate medical students tend to spend some of their college career studying in Estonia.

Cost of Living

Since the currency in Estonia is the Euro, this means most foreign students will need to plan ahead budget wish. Because the Euro exceeds the U.S. dollar, as well as, many other national currencies. But students can expect to spend around 300-600 EUR a month on accommodation, food, clothing, and daily needs.

In Estonia, accommodation price can vary based on which season it is, this is because Estonia does experience a seasonal summer tourist boom, and this means prices will go up in some areas.

For college campus dormitories, students can expect to shell out around 150 EUR or if the student chooses to pick a studio flat, that can add up to around 550 EUR.

However, this amount does suggest that Estonia is on the cheaper side when it comes to other European countries.

Tuition Cost

General tuition fees can always differ depending on which country a student decides to transfer to continue their higher education studies. In Estonia, vary from undergraduate students to graduate and postgraduate students. For example, undergraduate students can expect to spend around 1,660 EUR for a Bachelor’s degree, but around 7,000 – 8,000 EUR for a Master’s degree.

With any medicine base program, the cost will always be about double the amount of tuition a Master’s degree, in this case, in Estonia, pursing a medicine degree would come out to about 13,000 EUR.

Languages Spoken in Estonia

Many languages happen to be spoken in Estonia, such as: Voro, Seto, Russian, German, Swedish, Finnish, (Sign language is used widely here), as well as Estonian and some English. However, it is greatly suggested that foreign students should learn the Estonian language, Finnish, or Estonia Sign Language to help with their cultivation into the country and day to day life.
