ESN Tallinn is a non-profit organization that is based on an idea "students helping students". More accurately - we are doing everything in our means to make Erasmus students' life in Tallinn as fulfilled as possible.
ESN Tallinn was founded in 2003 and first started to take care of Erasmus students studying at Tallinn Pedagogical University (current name Tallinn University). Erasmus was at that time the most popular and most successful educational exchange program and most of the incoming international students came here with Erasmus. As the number of Erasmus students and other foreign students in this university was small, then volunteers in ESN Tallinn decided to take care of exchange students also in other higher education institutions in Tallinn. Year by year there were more and more exchange students coming to all the universities in Tallinn - as a result the range of our activities and volunteers has risen and we are covering more and more students.
Our organization is a part of ESN international AISBL (www.esn.org) and also members of ESN Estonia, which has a regulatory board to manage the ESN activity on the national level and be a link between the international and local level. (www.esn.ee/estonia)
Tallinn Health Care College has been working closely together with ESN Tallinn in taking care of foreign students since 2009.
