TLU student guide

This page contains a list of different activities you will have to take care of during the first weeks of the semester. Please also check the Orientation Week page for important events and information during the preliminary week of the semester!

If you have any questions or doubts, your first point of contact should be the study counsellor of your academic unit. However, you can always turn to other staff members or fellow students.

Please check our videos for instructions on how to create Tallinn University user account, submit your study plan, forward messages and check the timetables.
