Open studies admission for spring semester at Tallinn University of Technology is now open. It is possible to study subjects in the fields of engineering, IT, natural sciences, economics and maritime affairs. There are more than a thousand subjects to choose from and admission is open until 24 January.
There is a growing need for engineers in the society as well as new and well-educated experts in the fields of green and digital transition. “2022 promises to be an academic year of new and better opportunities,” stated Hanno Tomberg, Head of Open University of TalTech. “Many universities are restructuring their continuing education programmes and one way of doing that is by further integrating open studies with degree programme subjects.”
A student of TalTech Open University can select subjects from both Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes. In addition, it is possible to apply for microdegree programmes which consist of several degree programme courses and take into account the requirements of the labour market. Last year, nearly 1,500 students took advantage of the open studies programme offered at the Tallinn University of Technology.
“A student of TalTech Open University can put together their own individual study programme which they can complete in the volume and at a pace suitable for them,” explained Tomberg. The most popular subjects of TalTech Open University are programming, introduction to information technology, marketing, management and leadership, web technologies, building information modelling basics (BIM I), building physics, environmental protection and biochemistry. Students can select subjects from different TalTech schools and colleges.
Admission to microdegree programmes has been extended until 17 January and, in the spring semester, the university will offer a total of 16 microdegree programmes in the School of Engineering, the School of Business and Governance, the School of Science, the Estonian Maritime Academy, and Virumaa College.
