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 2022 (for non-EU candidates);
- 1st of August 2022 (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, latest by the personal deadline indicated in the DreamApply study offer. 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.
We kindly advise applying after you have reached the age of 18. Students under 18 years of age have limited legal capacity in Estonia. Certain transactions, such as opening the bank account and concluding accommodation & study contracts with TalTech, to receive medical treatment, can only be done with the prior notarized consent of the legal representative. TalTech has no legal responsibilities for underage students. You must present documents, which are certified by an apostille or legalized. These documents will be required in the later steps of admission, not in the pre-evaluation phase:
- notarized consent of your legal representative (must include previously mentioned actions) + official English translation;
- notarized copy of the identity document of your legal representative;
- notarized copy of your birth certificate + official English translation.
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. University is able to issue the invitation document for TRP 2 months prior to reaching the age of majority. At this point, students should start applying for the TRP and notify firstname.lastname@example.org for the invitation document to be issued. The invitation document will be sent 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 tuition fee rates and the rate and condition of compensation of study expenses at least four months before the start of the academic year. The rate of compensation of the study expenses may be raised by the university (unilaterally) by up to ten percent in comparison with the preceding academic year.
This also applies to tuition fees for students who have already commenced studies. You can see more about tuition fee rates HERE.
ALLOCATION OF STUDY PLACES
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 enrolment will be admitted. Please note that the ranking in admissions tests is not made public.
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 the 20th of July 2022. Please note that in case this happens you are able to choose another alternative study programme.
