Meet one of our students from Estonia

"What drew me to NTU was the amount of different courses available, such as Forensic Science, which I can’t study back in Estonia. I came to visit in the spring and I really just fell in love with NTU.  This was one of the best schools that offered the course I wanted to study, and I also really loved the campus and the vibe of the city."

Kirkke is currently in her second year studying BSc Forensic Science. Read her student story.
