These two years of adventure in Estonia has taught many life lessons and equipped me with not only academic knowledge but also life experiences, providing a new, practical and digital perspective on the world in which we live. Besides, the crucial factors that guided me throughout the journey are Motivation, Perseverance, Adaptability, Leadership and Unwavering willingness. However, after graduating from Tallinn University, I feel more confident, curious & responsible and want to contribute my knowledge and skills to the community in a functional manner.

Limbaroyati: Well, we’d like to explore and experience something different in some part

of the world and we found out Estonia might be best for both of us. Since we both found courses that we like. Also, the country seems very interesting. So, we just pack the bag and fly here.

Sunandan: My ambition to study in Estonia stems from its transparency, e-residency, digital society and startup environment. After checking information available online, it was evident that a business can be established here in a fast & efficient manner.
