Joining AEGEE

If you wish to join us, you need to fill in the registration form.Once that’s done, our HR responsible will contact you.

We accept new members all year round at any time.

Young people aged between 18 to 35 (included). We welcome students of all universities and colleges in Tartu, as well as high school students and graduates if they fit into the age limit. International and Erasmus students are also welcome to join!

The annual membership fee is 28 EUR and half-year membership fee 19 EUR.

No. We are able to function in English or bilingually in the presence of someone who doesn’t speak Estonian.

Each new member will have a mentor (an experienced member) that will introduce them to the organisation, answer their questions and help them find their place in AEGEE.

Being a member

No. Each member is free to decide which events and projects they want to be part of.

It is not mandatory but strongly recommended because that’s exactly how you’ll develop your skills and feel that you’re a member of the team.

Each member has the right to run for any position in the board regardless of how long they’ve been a member. The yearly board elections take place at the June Agora.

No. AEGEE is fully based on volunteering. However, the skills and experience you obtain in AEGEE can do you a favour in the job market. It will also help you build a network of contacts around Europe.


No, but the organizers do all they can to keep the participation fee as low as possible. The participation fee includes accommodation, meals and the program itself, however you’ll have to pay for the transport between Tartu and the place of the event.

Please find a description of the European events here..

No. There is no fixed path which you need to follow in order to build your AEGEE career. You can even start straight from the European level. However, in the case of some European positions, local board experience would be an advantage.


AEGEE’s local level is city-based (not university or country based). This means that AEGEE-Tartu welcomes young people living and studying in Tartu.

Antenna is a local level unit. For example, AEGEE-Tartu is an antenna, AEGEE-Tallinn is also an antenna etc.

Local Agora is AEGEE-Tartu’s biannual general assembly that is mandatory for all members. European Agora is also a biannual event, a similar thing for the European level where all antennae send their delegates. Every member has an opportunity (but not an obligation) to represent their antenna at the European Agora.

No. Unlike several other international student organisations, AEGEE does not emphasize state borders and strives for a borderless Europe. However, AEGEE does not deny the existence of different cultures within Europe.

AEGEE mõistab geograafilist Euroopat selle kõige laiemas tähenduses, seega kuuluvad sinna ka Türgi ja Kaukaasia. Samas on mõned Euroopa riigid, kus AEGEE antennasid hetkel ei ole. Antennade kaardi leiad siit.

Kahjuks muudes Eesti linnades AEGEE antennasid ei ole. Kui aga on olemas entusiastlikud noored, kes on valmis pikaajaliselt pühenduma, siis on antenna algatamine kõrgharidust pakkuvas linnas võimalik. Antenna algatamise ja täieõiguslikuks antennaks saamise protsessist loe siit.
