Isabelle Frochot: Estonia is very advanced in teaching methods
Dr Isabelle Frochot, a visiting associate professor of tourism marketing at the University of Tartu Pärnu College, says that she would recommend Estonia as a place to study without hesitation.
In Estonia, when one talks about a “university town”, one usually means Tartu, the home of the largest and oldest university in the country. And then, of course, everyone knows the capital, Tallinn, has many universities.
It therefore comes as a surprise to many – at least for outsiders – that the somewhat sleepy, but cute resort town Pärnu, home to just about 40,000 people, also hosts a higher education institution.
Under the wing of the University of Tartu, at Pärnu College one can obtain degrees in entrepreneurship, social work and tourism management. Master’s degree in “wellness and spa service design and management” is taught in English and it is this programme that brought Isabelle Frochot to Estonia, by a lucky chance.
“I teach a mix of students: Russian, Polish, Georgian, also from Montenegro, Nigeria and Cameroon. The students I have come across are very pleased with the teaching department here. And they are really happy in Pärnu. They are very relaxed in this town,” Frochot observes.
“It does not have to be a big city for the university, as long as the teaching standards are high – the students have a very happy life in Pärnu.”
