ISEP (International Student Exchange Programs) is a worldwide network of universities and colleges organising student exchanges. ISEP unites more than 320 universities all over the world.
University of Tartu (UT) is the only Estonian university which is the member of ISEP. If you choose Tartu University for your destination of studies, your chances to be placed in our institution are generally excellent. All you have to do is to find out if your home institution is a member of ISEP and apply for a placement in Tartu University. You will be receiving credits for the courses you take and you will be living in a new dormitory.
UT participates in both ISEP-Exchange and ISEP-Direct programmes:
- ISEP-exchange - student exchange programme. Students can study at UT without paying tuition fees and also receive free accommodation in the dormitory (place in a twin room) and monthly meal stipend. Additional costs that students need to cover by themselves are travel, health insurance and personal expenses.
- ISEP-direct - on a fee paying basis: students need to pay the semester fee that includes tuition and accommodation (place in a twin room). More information about the programme and semester fees can be found from ISEP webpage.
More information about UT and ISEP programmes can be found at: ISEP - UT profile.
How to apply?
To participate in the programme, you need to contact the ISEP coordinator of your home university and apply through your home university. Member institutions nominate participants for the programme and the ISEP staff, who have expertise in the academic systems of participating countries, match the qualifications and site preferences of nominees with available openings at each institution.
