Erasmus+ programme additional support
Students who have qualified for the need-based study allowance (paid by the Estonian state) or special need-based allowance (paid by the university) for the semester before exchange studies, or for the semester of exchange studies, are entitled to additional scholarship of 200 € /month, given they present a proof and application to TU Senior Specialist for International Studies. For the need-based allowance, the proof is to be taken by the student him-/herself from the Estonian state portal (name of the file you have to find is written in Estonian "OTSUS"). For the special need-based allowance, the proof about whether the student has been assigned the named allowance is asked by TU Senior Specialist for International Studies from the respective unit of Tallinn University.

Main principles

  • The calculation of the mobility period is counted ‘in days’ considering every month to have 30 days. Starting and ending date of the mobility is agreed in Learning Agreement. The actual duration of the exchange is confirmed from the Letter of Confirmation once the exchange has ended.

  • The first part (80%) of the scholarship is paid before the exchange and the second part (20%) after the exchange, if all the requirements have been fulfilled. Estonian Government Scholarship is paid before the exchange.

  • If the duration is shorter than planned, any excess grant amount will be reclaimed after the exchange has ended.

Estonian Government Scholarship

Students participating in Erasmus studies, will receive an additional one time scholarship on behalf of the Estonian Government.
