To be eligible for master's studies, applicants must have obtained bachelor's qualification or equivalent or be about to graduate in spring/summer 2017.
Students are admitted according to ranking lists formed on the basis of entrance requirements set for each curriculum.
Applications for prior learning assessment are accepted on a rolling basis and should be submitted to the Student Admissions, but no later than the application deadline set for 2017/2018. The most convenient option is to submit the assessment application along with the rest of the application documents.
It is strongly advised not to leave the application submission until the last day as processing of documents takes time, and in case of international applicants, the University may not manage to complete the procedure by the deadline.
The knowledge of Estonian must correspond to the level of B2, according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
The University will not process incomplete application packages, so applicants should make sure all of the required documents reach the University by the deadline.
Applicants graduating in 2017 and having their diplomas issued later than the application deadline (in July, for example) must send their most recent official Transcript of Records by the required deadline along with the rest of the required documents. Please inform the International Admissions Coordinator when the final qualification certificates will be issued.
All copies of educational documents (degree certificates and diploma supplements/academic transcripts) must be officially certified. Certified copies should bear an original signature and seal of the authority certifying that these are true copies of the original. The documents can be certified: 1) by an authorized official of the issuing institution; 2) by a notary; 3) with an Apostille attached. The University does not accept simple copies of already certified copies. Some country-specific requirements also specify the way documents must be certified: important information for non-EU applicants is available here.
The university's Admissions Committee will announce admission results by 17 July.
"I wanted to deepen my knowledge in computer science and I heard many good things about Estonia’s tech sector, so why not study here? University of Tartu is among the top 2% universities of the world. Extremely. Good. Deal."
