With more than 1,500 islands to explore, students who study at Estonia universities have plenty to keep them busy outside the classroom. Study in Estonia allows students the opportunity to enjoy a mild climate and to travel throughout Eastern Europe. Those who study abroad in Estonia, which, perhaps surprisingly, is known for classical and jazz music, will experience numerous folk traditions and interesting history.

Diplômed’Etat (State Diploma): the equivalent of the baccalaureate. It is obtained after six years of secondary studies. You should first obtain the Certificate of Primary Education (CEP) after passing successively by the College and the Lycée.
Graduate Diploma (graduate): it equals the DEUG or BTS. It is a diploma attesting the first three years of university or higher education. The Graduate Diploma obtained in a Higher Education School is based on technical skills and its duration is of three years. the technical orientation allows the holder of the diploma to have a body of specialized and practical knowledge and to be directly operational. As such, it amounts to a BTS. At the university, the same level corresponds to the DEUG.

Bachelor’s degree (Bachelor): It is the equivalent of the Master 1. It is a diploma attesting 5 years of university study, that is to say three years for the graduate diploma, plus two years for the state diploma. It should be noted that in Congo-Kinshasa, the total university cycle selected by the Ministry of National Education is of five years and some courses of study have a year of preparation. Despite many reforms, higher education remains on the inherited pattern of Belgium.

Information for Foreign Students in Estonia Getting There
Tallinn is Estonia's international gateway. In addition to direct daily flights to/from all major Scandinavian (Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo) and Baltic cities (Riga and Vilnius), there are direct flights from all major European hubs like London, Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam and regional hubs like Prague and Warsaw. Eastward connections are from Moscow and Kiev. Local carrier Estonian Air provides half of the services and the rest is provided by Finnier, SAS, Lufthansa, LOT, CSA, Air Baltic, Ryanair and others. Easy jet is one of a few low-cost carriers that provide service between Tallinn and major European cities. Travellers can pay as little as EUR 120 (US$160) or £80 Sterling to fly roundtrip from London to Tallinn.

Obtaining a Visa
Estonia is a member of the Schengen Agreement. For EU and EFTA (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland) citizens, an officially approved ID card (or a passport) is sufficient for entry. In no case will they need a visa for a stay of any length. Others will need a passport for entry.

Accommodation
Number of hotels has exploded from few to tens and hundreds after Estonia restored independence. In 2004, Tallinn achieved first place among the Baltic Sea cities in the number of overnight stays in hotels, though still behind Stockholm and Helsinki in the number of total overnight stays. A list of bigger hotels as well as some restaurants and nightclubs could be found at Estonian Hotel and Restaurant Association. As Soviet collective farms were disbanded, many farmers switched to running 'turismitalud,' or tourism farms, which are inexpensive and indispensable places for spending holidays in the nature, usually in a former farm house. A site on Estonian Rural Tourism provides information on the tourism farms in Estonia. Hostels are another popular option for budget-sensitive travellers; see the website of the Estonian Youth Hostel Association.
Cost of LivingEstonia remains cheaper than Western Europe, but it is no longer the bargain basement it used to be and in touristy areas (such as Tallinn's Old Town) prices are almost at Scandinavian levels.

Money
Estonia uses the Euro as its currency.

Telephone
Mobile access is available everywhere, even on the smaller islands and at sea. Prepaid (pay-as-you-go) SIM cards can be bought from R-kiosks (ask for a 'kõnekaart' - calling card in English). Popular brands are Simpel, Smart, Diil and Zen. Start-up packages are in a range of 50-150 EEK (3-10 EUR).  
Health
In general, Estonia has a good healthcare system. However, Estonia has Europe's second highest rate of adult HIV/AIDS infections, currently over 1.3% or 1 in 77 adults. Generally, the rate is much higher in Russian-speaking regions like Narva or Sillamäe. Don't make the situation worse by not protecting yourself and others.
TransportationIn Estonia, the public transport system is well-developed and it is preferable to walk, cycle or use public transport, given the local Eastern European style driving culture may be dangerous for the inexperienced.
