Graduation Ceremony


On 16 May, the class of 2023/24 of International Relations and Diplomacy received their certificates in the beautiful hall of Estonian Academy of Sciences.

After 8 months 21 students from Estonia, Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Kenya, Nigeria and Botswana rounded up their studies in Estonian School of Diplomacy.

This academic year the curriculum consisted of 19 varied subject matters ranging from international negotiations techniques and international law to cybersecurity and etiquette and protocol.

We had a very interesting year. Besides the ordinary study programme we had the honour of having exclusive meetings with international experts in their fields, participating in multiple international conferences and seminars, receiving visits of ambassadors and of course not the least had the privilege to receive the audience of the President of Estonia Alar Karis in Kadriorg.

All these experiences together with the knowledge gained, networks developed and most importantly friendships formed is what makes this study program unique.

We salute you the class of 2023/2024!

ESD would also like to thank Ambassadors, our lecturers and partners for coming to our graduation ceremony.

💰 The scholarships for our foreign participants are financed by the Estonian Centre for International Development from the Development cooperation assets.
