Students’ feedback

“What I especially love about Tartu summer university is that it gathered peers from the whole world and provided them with all conditions for long talks, long walks, and, I hope, long cooperation in the future. My fellow summer schoolers are the most amazing people I have ever met. They are flexible and multilingual; they easily accept new culture and mentality and recite poems in the languages that are not their mother tongues with genuine and sincere passion, they are brave to doubt the obvious, and most importantly, they share the same values.”
