Scholarships for international PhD students
There are no tuition fees for PhD studies at TalTech.
If you are admitted as an Early Stage Researcher, you will be employed at TalTech and paid a monthly salary of at least the average monthly salary in Estonia, in proportion to your workload during your nominal study period. The salary can exceed the Estonian average wage, depending on the particular PhD position.
All PhD students who were matriculated before the 2022/2023 academic year and are studying full-time, receive a doctoral allowance paid by the government (660€ per month) during the nominal period of studies, as per the Study Allowances and Study Loans Act. Additionally, a monthly scholarship or salary, guaranteed by the supervisor or the department, is paid on top of the government allowance.
