Estonia's 3rd millionth Erasmus student is from Viljandi Culture Academy
Figures released on August 8 reveal that more than 3 million students have benefitted from EU Erasmus grants since the exchange scheme's launch in 1987.
To mark the milestone, the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) invited students from the 2012-2013 intake to apply to represent the 3 millionth Erasmus student. 1 800 students applied and, from among them, ESN and the European Commission selected one per country, choosing those whose stories highlighted the breadth of possibilities offered by the programme and its impact.
Estonia's representative with this title is Pille-Riin Lillepalu from UT Viljandi Culture Academy. Pille-Riin Lillepalu did her Erasmus at Amsterdam School of Arts, Netherlands, where she studied production and stage management for 5 months. You can read her story from this official document among other representatives.
