Why Estonia? – Everything is close, everything is possible.
With roughly 1.3 million citizens, Estonia is one of the smallest countries in the European Union. Not only is it located in the perfect spot to visit Scandinavia, Russia and other Baltic countries, its size and history also make it possible to have an unique study experience.
In Estonia, all important connections and resources are within an arm’s length. It is easy to access the different political, commercial, social and educational institutions.
EKA offers its students several opportunities to exhibit their work in Estonia and abroad each semester. Our partners in art presentation and other activities are the Estonian Contemporary Art Museum, Contemporary Art Estonian Center, Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn Art Hall and the Artists’ Association’s Galleries in the city centre. EKA also cooperates with the Tallinn Technical University, Tallinn University, and the Estonian Music Academy.
(And it is even not too difficult to reach the President, if this would be important for your art.)
