Other universities may follow Tartu in Russian student bar

Universities in Estonia may follow suit in a bar on admitting new students from Russia and Belarus, after the University of Tartu announced plans to do just that, reports ERR News.

ETV news show ‘Aktuaalne kaamera’ (AK) reported on Wednesday 9 March that a total of 440 students who are citizens of the Russian Federation are studying at Estonia’s higher education institutions, joined by 50 from Belarus.

Hendrik Voll, vice-rector of studies at Tallinn University of Technology, told AK that the position of Estonian universities tends to be to act along the same lines. He said he shared Tartu University Rector Toomas Asser’s concerns about the security issue surrounding Russian and Belarusian students.
