Tuition fees for visiting students
Visiting students are free to design their own study plan and choose courses from different faculties. At the University of Tartu, tuition fee is established by academic units and by students’ level (bachelor; master). Tuition fee to be charged from a visiting students is thus related to the three criteria:
- visiting student’s study level at home university;
- faculty, college visiting student is admitted to at the University of Tartu (UT);
- number of credit points visiting student signs up for at UT .
For example: If you are currently studying as a bachelor level student at your home university and are admitted to the Faculty of Medicine at UT and take some courses from the Faculty of Medicine and some courses from the Faculty of Philosophy – you pay tuition fee according to the credit point price established for the Faculty of Medicine. If you are master level student and take some courses on bachelor level, you still pay according to your current study level – master’s level and vice versa.
Tuition fee invoice is created after the deadline for registration and cancellation to courses is over – about 2 weeks from the beginning of the semester has started and student has fixed and confirmed study plan for particular semester. Student will have 14 days to pay the tuition fee.
Full-time students take usually 30 ECTS per semester, which means that the average tuition fee would be around 1200 EUR per semester.
