Courses Taught in English
The University of Tartu offers many English-taught courses in different disciplines for international students.
International students have to register for courses through the Study Information System (SIS) within the first two weeks of a semester. For registration to courses in the Studies Information System, one must have a username and password which would be sent to all new international exchange/visiting students by the beginning of a semester. If you have not received your username, please contact your coordinator at UT.
If you arrive after the registration deadline, please contact the dean's office of the faculty to which you are registered to for help with registration. Thus, later arrival does not automatically mean that there is no possibility to join courses, if there are still vacant places available. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need more information about the courses.
International short-term students (except PhD and traineeship students) is required to complete courses at least to the extent of 15 ECTS per semester!
Courses taught in English and other languages
Academic year 2019/2020 (updated on November 29, 2019)
Please note that the list of English taught courses is updated continuously as soon as we get new information from the academic units. Overall information on all the courses offered at UT is in the Study Information System (SIS). SIS is the system where all UT students register for their courses and keep an eye on their progress etc.
Here is more detailed description of the Study Information System, including the instructions for course registration.
At the University of Tartu both differentiated and non-differentiated assessment of the learning outcomes (described for courses) are being used.
Each course has a fixed assessment method, which cannot be changed in accordance to a student’ needs or wishes. Before registering to a course, get to know which assessment method a particular course has, and consult your home university whether you can transfer the course once you get back home. If your selected UT course has an assessment method not acceptable to your home university, choose another course.
