Orientation for International Students

Orientation Days give you a good opportunity to obtain information about Tallinn University and Estonia (study system, courses in English, residence permit, health care, services for students, accommodation, student organisations, tour of the campus, intercultural communication). Orientation Days are also the best time to meet other international students who are starting their studies in Tallinn University. Orientation Days are conducted in English.
