TUT Celebrates Africa Day on 12th May


International Relations Office of Tallinn University of Technology alongside with local African students are organising Africa Day on 12th May to showcase the diverse culture of this mysterious continent. 

Everyone is welcome to attend interesting lectures, take part in an African dance workshop, visit exhibitions and African crafts fair & meet local African students to discover more about Africa. Cafeterias in the library and the SOC building of TUT will serve African dishes throughout the week.

Tea Varrak, Vice-Rector for Innovation and Internationalisation (TUT) stated, “As of this year, we will relaunch the tradition of presenting different cultures through special events.“ She added, “We wish to introduce the home countries of our biggest foreign student communities and bring the culture closer to the locals. In late February, we celebrated Chinese New Year and have now taken on Africa. For next autumn, we are already planning to go forth with two new exciting countries.“

The African student community is increasing each year as more and more Africans take interest in studying at TUT. “Having the opportunity to organise an African day in Estonia has been a great privilege,” said God'Swill Chimezie Nkwusi, PhD student in Material Science. He continued, “We are excited that everything is going smoothly with the preparation process and hope to have an awesome day!”
