Tallinn University of Technology

If you have Estonian citizenship or a long-term residence permit, you will be admitted based on the Estonian admission rules for Bachelor's and Master's studies; the application process takes place via SAIS system.

NB! For 2024/2025 academic year admission, the university has decided that a citizen of the Russian Federation or Belarus who cannot apply for a long-stay visa or residence permit for the purposes of studies in compliance with the procedures in force or does not have a valid legal basis to stay in Estonia until the end of the nominal period of study of the study programme cannot apply to Tallinn University of Technology. The legislation in force can be found here. Based on the former, the DreamApply application system is closed to candidates from the Russian Federation. In case the candidate has a valid legal basis for staying in Estonia until the end of the nominal study period of the study programme of interest, please send the proof document to study@taltech.ee to be given instructions on how to apply for the studies.

Admissions related tests

In order to apply for Master’s programmes, a candidate is required to present a Test-taker Score Report of the GRE General Test (see exceptions below). This is a prerequisite for qualifying and has to be fulfilled by the application deadline, the latest. The required threshold scores are:

  • Verbal Reasoning at least 145
  • Quantitative Reasoning at least 150
  • Analytical Writing at least 3.0

For School of Business and Governance programmes, the test must be completed but no thresholds have been set. For the Master's programme of Design and Technology Futures, the threshold score has to be the following: Verbal Reasoning at least 150; Quantitative Reasoning at least 130 and Analytical Writing at least 3.0. Only those candidates applying for the e-Governance Technologies and Services study programme, are allowed to take eGov Entry Test in TalTech Moodle instead of the GRE General test; see more information here.

Please find more information about the GRE General Test here. We kindly advise you to register for the test well in advance. There might not be many test dates available or the dates may get fully booked quickly. TalTech accepts tests conducted both at home and at a test center.

An applicant must upload the Score Report to the DreamApply application system. For verification, the score has to be ordered from the Educational Testing Service electronically directly to Tallinn University of Technology using GRE Designated Institution (DI) Code 5019. As receiving the score may take some time, please make the order prior to submitting your online application. On the test day, you can mark Tallinn University of Technology as a score recipient and in that case, it is not necessary to order results separately.

Note that your application will be processed further only after we have been able to verify the GRE score. The GRE General Test is valid for five years following the date of taking the test. The test must remain valid until the beginning of the academic year of the intended intake.

Please note that if you have completed a GRE General Test does not mean you do not have to fulfill the English language requirement as well. These are separate admission requirements and both have to be fulfilled latest by the application deadline (unless the waivers of either requirement apply to you). 

Waiving the GRE General Test requirement

Applicants who have obtained a full Bachelor's degree in one of the following countries are waived from the GRE requirement:

Kindly note that you must have resided in the above-listed member state while doing your Bachelor's level studies. A degree completed at an international branch campus outside the member states does not waive the GRE General Test requirement.

Applicable when applying for Bachelor’s programmes and Master’s programme in Industrial Engineering and Management

The Moodle online test is part of the admission assessment and takes place in a system called TalTech Moodle. There is a specific Moodle test for each of the five study programmes. Please see the exact description of the test on the corresponding programme page. There are no special preparatory materials available for the test. The questions in the test are in accordance with the level of knowledge that is expected from the candidates who wish to continue their studies in the specific programme.

Once the candidate’s online application and uploaded documents receive a positive pre-evalution, personal instructions and access to the admissions test will be given via the DreamApply application system. Please note that this test can be taken once and it must be completed within 5 days since access to TalTech Moodle has been given. The exact deadline is mentioned in the personal notification. The test must be completed by the deadline but may be taken at any time during the 5-day span. Please note that close to the application deadline, a shorter test deadline may be given in order for the applications to be processed in due time. Please follow the instructions sent via DreamApply. If needed, it is allowed to use a calculator. Before starting the test, make sure that you have established a reliable internet connection. A failed attempt due to poor online connection will not grant a second chance for taking the test. 

If your test score exceeds the threshold, you can continue with the application process and you will soon be invited to the online interview.

    Additional information

    IF YOU ARE DOING YOUR LAST YEAR OF STUDIES

    If the applicant is in the process of completing the last semester and has not received a diploma yet, the application can be submitted with provisional results from his/her school. In this case, your degree has to be completed by:

    • 1st of July (for non-EU candidates);
    • 1st of August (for EU candidates). 

    Instead of a degree certificate, you will need to upload to the DreamApply application system your own statement concerning your degree, including the following information:

    • interim transcript;
    • confirmation letter from the school with the expected date of graduation;
    • other relevant information concerning your graduation.

    If you are accepted to the university, your final education documents must arrive at Tallinn University of Technology by post as soon as possible, by the personal deadline indicated in the DreamApply study offer, at the latest. Please make sure that it is possible to send documents by the given deadline. If you fail to complete your degree or deliver documents by the deadline, your study offer will be dismissed.

    UNDERAGE STUDENTS

    We advise applying after you have reached the age of 18. Students under 18 years of age (hereinafter referred to as the underage students) have limited legal capacity in Estonia. Some transactions, such as opening the bank account and concluding accommodation & study contracts with TalTech, can be concluded by you with the prior consent of your legal representative (i.e. your parent or your guardian appointed by court) or by the legal representative himself/herself on behalf of you. 

    Pursuant to Estonian law parents have the obligation and right to care for their underage student. The parent’s legal custody includes the right to care for the person of the child and for the property of the child and decide on matters related to the child.

    Certain transactions, for instance receiving medical treatment, handling matters with the authorities, require the presence of your legal representative. Hence, it is mandatory that your legal representative accompanies you in Estonia until you turn 18 to deal with legal actions. Underage students can independently make transactions with financial resources given to him/her for this purpose by a legal representative or a third person with the latter's consent.

    Please note that TalTech has no legal responsibilities for underage students. In order to start studies at TalTech as an underage student, you must present a consent of your legal representative which states inter alia that he/she stays with you in Estonia until you turn 18, or the Power of Attorney issued by your legal representative, which states a person residing in Estonia who is your support person during studies at TalTech until you turn 18 and to whom the university can contact with any question related to you.

    Therefore, three sets of documents will be required in the later steps of admission, not in the pre-evaluation phase:

    1. a copy of the identity document of your legal representative which is notarized and certified by an apostille or legalized;

    2. a copy of your birth certificate + official English translation which is notarized and certified by an apostille or legalized;

    3. a consent of your legal representative which must include the abovementioned legal transactions and in case the legal representative stays with you in Estonia, the consent must state this information as well + official English translation, which is notarized and certified by an apostille or legalized. In case your legal representative does not stay with you in Estonia during your studies at TalTech until you turn 18, you must submit a Power of Attorney issued by your legal representative, which states a person residing in Estonia whom the university can contact in any question related to you in order to receive approval, inter alia a question receiving medical treatment, use of financial means, handling matters with the authorities + official English translation which is notarized and certified by an apostille or legalized.

    Please note that minor students cannot obtain the Temporary Residence Permit for Studies (TRP) until reaching 18 years of age. Up to that time, minors have to ensure another legal basis for staying in Estonia, for example, the long-stay D-visa. The university can issue the invitation document for TRP 2 months before reaching the age of majority. At this point, students should start applying for the TRP and notify study@taltech.ee for the invitation document to be issued. The invitation document will be sent electronically directly to the Police and Border Guard Board. 

    TUITION FEE INFORMATION

    According to Tallinn University of Technology's Admission Requirements Chapter 1, § 5. (5), persons from outside of the European Union commencing studies in a self-paid study programme shall pay the tuition fee for the first academic year prior to matriculation. An invoice with a personal deadline for a full first-year fee will be issued via DreamApply after the conditional acceptance offer is made. From the second academic year, tuition fees are charged according to registered credits with invoices issued through the Study Information System (ÕIS) at the beginning of each semester. 

    EU/EEA citizens study for free, except for programmes in the School of Business and Governance. Invoices for students enrolled in fee-paying programmes are issued through the Study Information System (ÕIS) at the beginning of each semester. Students in tuition-free study places need to complete a nominal load, which is 30 ECTS per semester. Missing credits will be charged after every semester. 

    Tuition fee rates per academic year are available on the programme pages

    The university sets the tuition fee rates and the rate and condition of compensation for study expenses at least four months before the start of the academic year. The rate of compensation for the study expenses may be raised by the university (unilaterally) by up to ten percent compared with the preceding academic year.

    This also applies to tuition fees for students who have already commenced their studies. You can see more about tuition fee rates HERE.

    ALLOCATION OF STUDY PLACES

    For most study programmes, there is no restriction on the number of study places in the programmes. Candidates that complete the admission steps successfully and fulfill all the requirements for enrollment will be admitted. The number of study places is limited in two study programmes only - BSc in Cyber Security Engineering and MSc in Cybersecurity. Please note that the ranking in admissions tests is not made public for any programmes.

    OPENING THE CURRICULUM

    TalTech has a right not to open a curriculum if less than 15 applicants have confirmed their student places. In this case, accepted students will be notified at the earliest opportunity, but no later than in mid-July. Please note that in case this happens, you are able to choose another alternative study programme. 

    STUDY LOAD

    The university provides full-time and part-time studies. Upon matriculation, a student shall decide whether he/she will study full-time or part-time in the first academic year, unless only full-time or part-time studies are allowed in the study programme. The workload selected by a student is assigned to the student by a matriculation or rematriculation order of the Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs. Students who need a temporary residence permit (TRP) for staying in Estonia can only study full-time as it is regulated by the law. Students who do not need a TRP for staying in Estonia can also opt for the part-time studies possibility. International Admissions office should be notified via study@taltech.ee before matriculation process starts if the student will like to opt for part-time studies, latest by the beginning of August.
