Welcome to the University of Tartu!

The academic year 2021/2022 starts on 30.08.2021. Please see UT academic calendar. Before the official beginning of an academic year, 25-27 August, there will be orientation day(s). Whether we can provide some face-to-face meetings or mostly online, will be announced later.

Once you have received your admissions letter from UT and while preparing for your arrival in Estonia, the most important aspects to take care of are
visa matters for non- EU/EEA students and housing options for students of all backgrounds.

Practical information useful both prior and after arrival in Estonia is at UT Welcome Web. The checklists reminding the steps new students need to take after arrival are given at Arrival ABC.
Newly admitted students can sign up for the courses in our Study Information System (SIS) during 30.08.2021 – 13.09.2021. Registration guidelines are in SIS.

To be well informed of all the obligations after your travel to Estonia (self-isolation/ testing etc), please read COVID-19 FAQ-s below (in red). However, these are the requirements currently in force. We regularly update this website based on the recent developments in Estonia. As for the current procedure rules for conducting teaching at UT, see the main website
