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 2021 (for non-EU candidates);
- 1st of August 2021 (for EU candidates).
Instead of a degree certificate, you will need to provide 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 education documents must arrive at Tallinn University of Technology latest by the 15th of July 2021 (for non-EU candidates) and the 15th of August 2021 (for EU candidates). Please make sure that it is possible to send documents by the 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.
TUITION FEE INFORMATION

An invoice with a personal deadline for 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 Study Information System (ÕIS) in the beginning of each semester.
EU/EEA students study for free, except for programmes in School of Business and Governance.

Tuition fees are subject to increase 10% every year. The university has the right to unilaterally make changes in the amount of tuition fee before the beginning of each new academic year in accordance with the Higher Education Act. This also applies to tuition fees for students who have already commenced studies. You can see more about tuition fee rates HERE.
