Estonian studies abroad

In cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Research, the Estonian Institute supports and organises the studies of Estonian language and culture in other countries. Since 2004, the secretariat of the council of the academic studies of Estonian language and culture abroad operates at the Estonian Institute, relying on the relevant state programme and the decisions of the programme council. The network of the academic studies includes over thirty universities across the world, involving more than five hundred students.

Within the framework of the Compatriots’ programme the Estonian Institute helps organisations, educational societies and schools of Estonians living abroad, also international schools in arranging the teaching of Estonian. The network contains over 50 institutions across the world.
