Warm welcome to the University of Tartu!
The autumn semester of the academic year 2022/2023 starts on August 29, 2022. Please see UT academic calendar. The first day of the academic year is more for ceremonial events and info sessions per programmes.
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, such as travelling to Tartu etc, 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) once they have received UT login credentials and registration is open until September 12, 2022.
The username and password (login credentials) of the university computer network will be sent to your e-mail before the beginning of the semester. Degree seeking students can start with course registration on 22 August, 2022. Exchange students maybe a bit later, yet still before the beginning of the academic year. Registration guidelines are in SIS.
All first-year and exchange students will receive the university's e-mail address in the format of email@example.com, 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.
See you soon in Estonia!
