Admissions page in Estonian
All students admitted to the university who do not speak sufficient Estonian need to complete the Intensive Estonian Language Course first. The courses are offered on the basis of English and Russian. Applicants who would start to learn Estonian on the basis of English also have to meet the English language requirements.
Exception: In the programmes of Medicine (Estonian group), Dentistry and Pharmacy students are required to be sufficiently fluent in Estonian at the time of admission to the university. The knowledge of Estonian must correspond to the level of B2, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Upon applying to medical studies (general Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy), candidates must submit a result of the Estonian language proficiency test (please ask for further info which tests are recognized or acceptable from the International Student Service).

Upon application please make sure what documents need to be submitted and when. All copies of educational documents (diplomas, exam certificates and grade lists) must be officially certified: bear an original seal and a signature of an authorized official of the issuing school/university. Official documents must be provided from the institution awarding the secondary school certificate or certified with an Apostille. Some country-specific requirements also specify the way documents must be certifed.
Only complete application packages will be considered by the Admissions Committee.
To apply for a number of programmes of the Faculty of Social Sciences, applicants have to take the academic aptitude test (can be replaced with the SAT test). Other applicants do not have to take the academic aptitude test, but can do that if they want to. Those who score 80 or more at the academic aptitude test are admitted to a curriculum they would like to be enrolled in.
The academic aptitude test will take place on 5 July 2016 at 10 am in Tartu and Tallinn. The academic aptitude test can be taken in Estonian and Russian.
The university's Admissions Committee will announce admission results by 15 July
"I chose the University of Tartu, because I wanted to move to Estonia in general (as my father used to live here) and to study Estonian and Computer Science in particular. The university offers very good quality education with super friendly staff. Tartu is a cool, fun, cheap and cozy campus town."
