The autumn 2020 program runs from the 22nd of September until the beginning of December and each participant can freely select the events they wish to attend based on their interests, possibilities and time schedule. The events are held in English as group activities in the evenings and on the weekends. Further information and the schedule will be sent to everyone who has registered.

The free “Cultural step” program is available for new participants who aren’t native Estonian speakers and are at least 16 years old. For participants who have already graduated the program and wish to continue it’s possible to join the events by covering the costs.
