Estonian Business School's exchange students usually rent private apartments in the city centre (EBS is also situated in the city centre) and often two or three students share bigger apartments.

The most useful and effective ways of finding accommodation have proven to be: 

Always make sure you discuss your apartment choice with your buddy from EBS International Club. Your buddy can also go and check the apartment out before you rent it or make any payments.

Erasmus charter for higher education 2014-2020

The Erasmus+ programme supports, among other policy objectives, the European modernisation and internationalisation agenda in higher education. The Programme covers the period 2014-2020.

The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) provides the general quality framework for European and international cooperation activities a higher education institution (HEI) may carry out within the Programme. The award of an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education is a pre-requisite for all HEIs located in an eligible country (the list is published in the call – see the link below) and willing to participate in learning mobility of individuals and/or cooperation for innovation and good practices under the Programme. For HEIs located in other countries, the ECHE is not required, and the quality framework will be established through inter-institutional agreements between HEIs. The Charter is awarded for the full duration of the Programme.

Estonian Business School's award of ECHE
