Incoming Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching

Planning your teaching mobility at the School of Educational Sciences

Each year Tallinn University the School of Educational Sciences welcomes a number of colleagues from partner universities within the framework of Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching. Internationalisation is one of the main goals of Tallinn University and one of the strategic priorities of our school. We are very happy to receive our good colleagues who provide invaluable additions to the courses we teach, stimulate discussions of topics related to it (methodology, teaching materials etc.) and share mutual experiences to create the best practices.

Each year we receive a growing number of requests to visit the School of Educational Sciences for teaching mobility. In order to make the process smoother for both those who wish to come here and for us to determine who we are able to host and who, sadly, not (sometimes people wishing to come here have deadlines at their home university, but the information they provide at the initial stage is insufficient for us to make any decision on if we are able to host), we kindly ask you to consider the following before making your request and filling out the School of Educational Sciences Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching form:

  • Dates of your visit. Like any university, Tallinn University has its academic calendar which regulates when we have contact classes and when teaching assignments can be done. We do not have teaching in summer, nor during the reading weeks. Please consult our academic calendar to determine when we have contact study periods.
  • Content of your teaching assignments. Like any institution we do not teach absolutely everything and some topics are difficult to accommodate because they do not fit logically into any of our courses. As the majority of our courses are taught in Estonian, fitting in a component in a foreign language can be a problem. To get a better idea whether your topic/area would be of interest for us can be checked here.

The next step would be to fill out the Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching form here and sending the filled out form to Kerttu Toompalu ( Each candidate will be contacted based on this.

Incoming Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Training

Planning your staff mobility for training at the School of Educational Sciences

Often academic or non-academic colleagues wish to visit the School of Educational Sciences not to teach but as staff for training. Mostly, these activities consist of visiting classes, exchanging ideas with our staff on various teaching/project related matters (methods and materials used, project cooperation, etc.), planning future cooperation/projects or/and getting to know how specific areas in the School of Educational Sciences function (student support, internationalisation, etc). As with Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching, it is essential to provide dates for a potential visit and specific activities planned during the visit. Also, it is important to keep in mind that we cannot accommodate all activities requests or, sadly, sometimes the whole visit.

For an Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Training visiting request, please contact the Kerttu Toompalu ( Each candidate will be contacted based on this.

Incoming Erasmus+ Student Mobility for Traineeship

Planning your foreign traineeship at the School of Educational Sciences

The School of Educational Sciences can serve as host to Erasmus+ Student Mobility for Traineeship. Getting a traineeship place depends on several factors, such as the availability of a supervisor, suitability of your field of studies, availability to provide activities for you in English and the planned time of your traineeship. To get a better idea whether your studies background would be of interest for us can be checked here. Due to that, please keep in mind that we cannot host everyone who wishes to do their Erasmus+ Student Mobility for Traineeship in the School of Educational Sciences. Please find information on traineeship and applying here.
