Tutoring network has been successfully functioning at the Estonian University of Life Sciences already for years. Buddies are students who help newly arrived students, both international and from Estonia, to adapt into academic environment.

All newly arrived international students are welcome to contact any of the buddies below regardless of their speciality. Of course, students of the same speciality can offer you more help, but they all are ready to answer your questions on customs and traditions, study regulations, handling everyday life issues, sports, etc.

A tutor scholarship 2020 

This year, for the first time, it was possible to reward buddies who have supported international students during their settling period in Estonia and helped them to smoothly begin their degree studies or exchange semester at Estonian University of Life Sciences with a tutor scholarship. Until December 5, it was possible for everyone to send in their support letters for buddies/tutors. We are very happy that people didn’t hold back and there were very many support letters from students and staff.


Lidiia Moskalenko, Siim Sepp and Indrek Virro– you’ve done a really good job and it has been noticed!


The rector of EMÜ issued a certificate of appreciation together with a small gift for you!

Once again, thank you from the International Club, the Office of Academic Affairs and the whole EMÜ family.
