Latin America is one of the biggest sending regions in the world. Despite the fact that Estonian has no embassies in Latin America and South America, Estonian universities see a rising interest in studying at Estonian universities.
"The biggest sending countries from that region are Brazil, Mexico and Colombia," commented Eero Loonurm, the head of Higher Education International Marketing initiative Study in Estonia.
"Also, Peru, Costa Rica and Ecuador are on the rise. From the whole region there are more than 150 international degree students studying in Estonia."
Besides Estonia the participating countries are Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States.
Study in Estonia is a cooperation initiative that introduces Estonia as a country offering high quality higher education opportunities. All Estonian institutions of higher education, at which it is possible to study in at least one program that is taught fully in English and is internationally recognised, can participate in the programme. The activities of Study in Estonia are coordinated by the Estonian Education and Youth Board in the framework of the Dora Pluss program, which is being realised via the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and with the aid of EU structural support.
