The International Club is a society brought to life on the 21st of October 2003 by the Student Council of Tallinn University of Technology. It is also a section of Erasmus Student Network (ESN) since 2009 after years of collaboration with ESN Tallinn, an international student organization set up to help exchange students.
Our mission is to help every year hundreds of foreign students (Erasmus students and international degree students) to settle into the Estonian lifestyle and make their stay here as pleasant as possible. Every incoming student who registers with us is paired with a personal tutor - or buddy - who will help them with logistical, social and educational issues, gives advice and is a great friend in general.
Throughout the semester they organize events for all the international students studying at Tallinn University of Technology!
The semester for exchange students and their buddies begins with Orientation Days as ESN TalTech IC cooperates with TalTech International Relations Office (IRO) to make the first days for the new incoming students in the university as smooth and memorable as possible. During the first week, students also meet their buddies for pizza and karaoke in the student bar Pööning. The week is highlighted with the Estonian Evening and Pub Crawl as one of the first (as well as favourite) events for students the whole semester!
ESN TalTech IC organizes a variety of events and trips chosen by members’ preferences i.e. Survival trip and the most legendary event for students as well as the buddies trip to South- Estonia. In addition, there are presentations of national foods and culture in a series of parties - Estonian Evening, International Dinner. The IC takes the students to different organizations - Parliament, Saku Brewery, Kalev Chocolate factory, Maritime Museum etc. Obviously, IC introduces local student life through Tallinn Student Days and shows the Estonian student spirit through participation in the Independence Day Parade. The section also keeps TalTech foreign students active with sports - Football tournaments in cooperation with ESN Tallinn, laser tag and takes them to the sauna.
