Exchange Courses

Courses taught in English, Russian, German, French, Italian and Spanish are listed by the Schools and Colleges. Exchange students can choose courses from different Schools - please choose the School to see the course offers. However, some of the Schools and Colleges have set limitations to attending the courses - please read the information provided in the section for comments. By clicking on the title of the course you will be taken to the course outline, which provides basic information about the course.

As an exchange student, you can only choose from among the courses that are offered in these lists!

The information about the course also includes the assessment form. Some courses end with an examination where the student will get a grade, some courses end with an assessment where the student will get a P (pass) or MA (fail). Starting from Spring Semester 2016/2017 it is not possible to get a grade for a result marked as P on the transcript of credits!

NEW! It is now possible to join ELU - a new type of subject at Tallinn University where students from different study fields carry out a collaborative project on a topic of their interest. The team consists of 6-8 students from at least three different study fields.

It is a subject which is not organised in the form of a lecture and where the teacher does not dictate the students what to do and how to do it. The initiative and management of the activities lies with the students. Read more
