Introduction Saaremaa is the biggest island in Estonia, with Kuresaare(pop. 14 926) being it´s center Kuressaare College of Tallinn University of Technology(KCTUT) is one of two schools in Saaremaa, that offer higher education. It is the biggest Has a notable part in the development of the region Saaremaa is known target area for tourists, especially finns, russians, latvians, swedish, estonians
Curriculas The curriculas here are specifically designed to meet the needs of local economics and therefore include three of Saaremaa's most important business areas: tourism, boat building and electronics The oldest curricula in Kuressaare College is tourism and catering management Electronic Systems is for future electronic engineers, as there are two medium sized electronic manufacturing facilities in Kuresaare
Ship building is the current rising trend in this region, so curriculas for preparing staff for ship building companies have been implemented Small business administration is being taught as well. The college itself is rather small and therefore fits right into the idyllic small-town life of Kuressaare.
There are currently no international curriculas in Kuressaare College, but for those interested in exotic experiences, after completing a preliminary course on Estonian language, a rather isolated island life with an opportunity to obtain education from one of the best universities in Estonia could be an interesting challenge
