The University of Tartu has been participating in the European Community higher education programme Erasmus since the academic year 1999/2000. The programme has opened a great opportunity to widen transnational co-operation between higher education institutions by promoting mobility for students and teaching staff, and improving transparency and academic recognition of studies and qualifications throughout the Europe.
Within the Erasmus programme University of Tartu is collaborating with more than 450 higher education institutions. In the academic year 2012/2013, there are around 750 bilateral agreements within the field of mobility of students and teaching staff.
International Student Service (Ülikooli St. 18, room 104) welcomes all incoming Erasmus academic staff. Everybody is welcome to come by upon arrival, fill in the registration form and pick up their welcome package. In case one cannot visit our office, we still would like them to fill in the registration form and forward it either by post (the address is indicated above) or by email to: elen [dot] ruutel [ät] ut [dot] ee.
The University of Tartu is very much opened to develop and widen the co-operation with the partners and participate in the centralised Erasmus actions. The higher education institutions interested in co-operation with University of Tartu are welcome to contact the Departmental Erasmus Coordinators at Faculties/Colleges.
Application information for the students can be found here.
