The admission season for the University of Tartu began yesterday, with English-language master's programs first to accept applications.
The deadline for submission of documents, which can be done online through the Admission Information System (SAIS), runs through April 16. The list of enrolled students for English-language groups will be published on June 1.
According to Ülle Tensing, specialist in international studies at the university, English-language master’s studies have increasingly gained popularity among Estonian students as well. "This is a great opportunity to obtain an international learning experience in Estonia together with a top notch education," said Tensing.
Applications can be submitted for eight English-language master's degree programs not taught anywhere else in the Baltics or Central Europe. This year the university offers 50 tuition free spots in English-language MSc studies in software engineering, for example.
