Studying as a gateway to working in Estonia
To celebrate the new year, we offer a short insight into the possibility to use studying as a way to establish yourself in Estonia and use the time to get familiarized with potential employers. Study and work go hand in hand for a lot of the people and foreigners in Estonia are no exception. Sure, there are conditions for residence permits based on study and work and we are happy to help with any questions you might have.
You can check out the studying possibilities on this site: http://www.studyinestonia.ee/en
The residence permit for studying also gives a right to work in Estonia as long as it does not interfere with the studies and does not lead to breach of the terms of studying. After the end of studies, you need a separate residence permit or a long-term visa for working.
There are many options for job search and the IT-sector is the sector that is hiring the most. IT-sector jobs also have the advantage that they do not go under our immigration quota.
