Dear new international students,
Welcome to the Autumn semester of 2020/2021 academic year and to the Getting Started site! Here you will find all the information you need to have a smooth start as a student at the University of Tartu.
The academic year starts on 31 August; partially online. Fully online study is not, and will not be, the aim of the university, but as it is hard to predict the further spread of the virus and the national and international restrictions, we must be prepared to offer more web-based teaching in the autumn, and realise that more IT tools may need to be used to participate in the learning process.
We allow international students and international visiting students who experience difficulties with entry to Estonia to participate in studies via online tools and, if necessary, on an individual basis, until the end of October or until most of them have arrived in Estonia. In the English-taught programme of medicine it is not possible to start studies in the virtual learning environment. Also international visiting students need to understand that not all English-taught courses can be taught online.
