International candidates applying to bachelor´s or master´s programmes at the University of Tartu are required to pay a non-refundable application fee of EUR 50. Applicants who have completed the previous study level in Estonia or have Estonian citizenship do not have to pay the fee. Please note that there are no additional exemptions from the application fee.
The application fee is required to facilitate the admissions process and will not be refunded, regardless of the admission result. An application will only be processed after the fee has been received by the university.
NB! Please make sure you are able to submit all required documents by the application deadline before paying the application fee. Paying the application fee alone does not grant the right to enter into competition, all other necessary documents (such as proof of English language proficiency and educational documents) must be submitted by the given deadline as well. If you face difficulties with the credit card payment, please contact us at admissions [ät] ut.ee and add a screenshot of your error message.
Also, please note that the University of Tartu does not extend the deadline for submitting the required documents due to COVID-19 related problems. Applicants who are unable to submit the required documents by the application deadline this year are encouraged to apply next year.
Paying the fee of EUR 50 enables to choose two study programmes at maximum. All applicants are expected to give careful attention to the chosen programme(s)’ admission requirements prior to making the payment. The university will not refund payments made in error. Unsuccessful applications which are resubmitted in the following admission period are not exempt from the requirement to pay the application fee.
The payment must be made by the application deadline at the latest:
March 15: English-taught master´s programmes
