Orientation Days

for new Bachelor's & Master's students

ORIENTATION DAYS 2020

Dear international Bachelor's or Master's student, we are looking forward to meeting you. 

The Orientation Days are a special programme to help you settle in during your first few days in TalTech and learn more about our university and life in Estonia in general. The Orientation Days take place in the beginning of the new academic year. We strongly advise you to participate in order to get a good start of your academic adventure in TalTech. In addition to all the useful information, you will also get acquainted with your fellow students. 

Participation is free.

Due to the worldwide pandemic, the welcome days will be different from previous years, but we are working very hard on giving you the best possible welcome. Whilst striving for a safe programme, we also aim at giving you a real start of your campus life.
