Tallinn University of Technology

TalTech offers professional psychological counselling service for its students and staff members. The Counsellor service is especially for our international students. But also faculty and staff members are welcomed to get guidance and support how to help students. Counselling for personal issues is also offered.

The purpose of psychological counselling is to support the students with study-related and personal challenges and difficulties. 
In a safe and caring atmosphere students can confidentially discuss all the topics that may concern them:

  • anxiety 
  • worrying
  • insecurity
  • lack of motivation
  • lowered mood and depression
  • unexpected life events
  • difficulties in making choices
  • etc. 

International students may experience exactly the same difficulties as local students, however, they may face some extra challenges and find it sometimes hard to adjust to a new environment. International students can find themselves feeling isolated, missing what is familiar, having difficulties understanding local culture or people, making new contacts, or hard time adjusting to a different climate or way of studying.
Together with the psychologist all of these topics and possible solutions can be discussed. 

Counselling sessions are confidential (information about the students’ identity and topics discussed will not be disclosed) and free of charge. 
Students can make the appointment via e-mail.


The Social Insurance Board has brought together the various support and prevention lines it offers and has produced a leaflet to help clarify the existing helplines and support.
