A combined effort between the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Embassies, Björk is designed to put the Nordic countries at the forefront of Estonians' crucial career and education decisions.

Carita Pettersson, Director of the Nordic Council of Ministers' office in Estonia, says the Nordic countries have a lot to offer for both the student and the professional. "Life-long learning is becoming an inevitable necessity for everyone. However, people tend to underestimate the value of it and are unaware of how best to seek it. Relatively under-utilised is the e-learning method which enables us to fit studies most favourably into our life rhythm" elaborates Pettersson.

The website showcases courses on offer with the educational bodies in the Nordic countries. The focus of the information programme will be on vocational education/training, e-learning and life-long learning. Estonian educational institutions will also have the opportunity to market their services for Nordic people.
