Support fund for Ukrainian students
The university student body has opened a support fund for charity to support the living expenses of Tallinn University Ukrainian students in Estonia. To support Ukrainian students, students collect donations to following accounts:
- SEB, Tallinna Ülikooli Üliõpilaskond, EE431010011911416225;
- Swedbank, Tallinna Ülikooli Üliõpilaskond, EE282200221026097397.
When donating, students ask to add to the explanation "donation in support of Ukraine (your name, if desired)".
All information regarding admissions can be found here.
In addition to students starting their studies, the university also accepts students whose education has been interrupted due to the war. Students who wish to continue their studies as exchange students, are provided with tuition free study places. However, the number of tuition free study places is limited. Please note that at least a B2 level of English language proficiency is required to study in Tallinn University.
Students whose documents have not been preserved or are incomplete will be referred to the Estonian ENIC / NARIC Center for academic recognition. Read more about it.
