Coming to Estonia...
I found a great opportunity online about a master programme in “materials and processes of sustainable energetics“ which was launched for first time in September 2009. The master takes place in the 2 biggest universities in Estonia: Tallinn University of Technology and University of Tartu, in addition is financed by the Estonian Ministry of Science and Education.

Before coming here...
I knew that after the Estonia joining the European Union it became an attractive country linked with the rest of Europe but with lower prices. This is a huge advantage for a student. Besides Estonia is a safe place with exotic weather. 

Student life in Estonia...
Estonian universities offer great services and facilities such as dormitories, libraries also the people in the international office always willing to help you. During lectures the classrooms are well equipped and the best advantage during my studies was be able to find all my study materials online. 

Studying in Estonia...
The atmosphere is much international than in my country and I was able to improve my English and be learning a new language like German. With the help of Erasmus programme I was able to apply for one exchange semester in Germany.

Best things that have happened to me in Estonia...
During my studies at Tallinn University of Technology I have been involved with the  department of materials science who assigned me a project for my thesis. I have gained important extra and update information related with my studies.

I would tell others...
I strongly recommend Estonia as a place to study. Universities here offer study programmes in English language in almost all kind of areas. Also local people are friendly and tolerant about the language. Compare it with other European countries - here it is easier to survive only with English knowledge. 

I miss the most...
Sometimes a cultural shock is unavoidable. There will be always something from home to be missing  like family, food or warm wheather but you will gain a lot of unforgettable experiences that you would not have at home.

My degree programme is...
Fuel cells, oil shale, wind energy, nuclear power, energy management and planning, thermodynamics...

Studying is in Estonia is an international experience...
With my future degree on master of science from Tallinn University of Technology and after having practised my English now I feel much more self confident to get a better job compare to 2 years ago when I finished my bachelor at my home university in Mexico.

My future...
Due to my studies are based on sustainable energy such as solar or wind renewable sources and Germany is the leader country on this area I would like either continue a PhD there or find a job.

The last thing I want to say...
En Estonia no solo tienes la oportunidad de conocer las 4 diferentes estaciones del año con los dias largos de verano, tambien es un excelente lugar para estudiar y tener amigos de todas partes del mundo.
