Warm welcome to the University of Tartu!
The spring semester of the academic year 2021/2022 starts on February 7, 2022. Please see UT academic calendar.
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 Tartu Welcome Centre 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 (autumn semester) and students who come for spring semester can sign up for the courses during 07.02.2022-21.02.2022. Registration guidelines are in SIS. The username and password (login credentials) of the university computer network will be sent to your e-mail by the beginning of the semester. All first-year and exchange students will receive the university's e-mail address in the format of firstname.lastname@example.org, through which communication with the university takes place. New students can learn about their curriculum and/or courses' timetables in SIS prior receving their login credentials.
To be well informed of all the aspects regarding your travel to Estonia (including info on testing and self-isolation), please read about relevant travelling requirements.
Please also see the procedure rules for conducting teaching at UT here and restriction currently in force in Estonia here.
The University of Tartu would like to start teaching and studies in the spring semester as normally as possible using in-class teaching. Therefore, it is important that we have as many students and staff vaccinated as possible. Check also relevent info on vaccination in Estonia.
