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 latest by the application deadline. Required threshold scores:
- 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.
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 early. 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. Studies conducted in the international branch campus outside the member states do not grant waive for 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 admissions assessment and takes place in the 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 present programme.
Once 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. Exact deadline is mentioned in the personal notification. Test must be completed by the deadline but may be taken at any time during the 5-day span. 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.
