Courses Taught in English
The University of Tartu offers many English-taught courses in different disciplines for international students. Some courses are grouped into semester programmes delivered every year.
International students have to register for courses through the Study Information System (SIS) within the first two weeks of a semester. If you arrive after the registration deadline contact the dean's office of the faculty to which you are registered as a student for help with registration. Thus, later arrival does not automatically mean that there is no possibility to join courses, if there are still vacant places available. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need more information about the courses.
To get more information about a specific course, its general description and syllabus, use a numerical code for searching in the Study Information System which for general information is accessible without a username. The course code can be found in the lists above.
