Stipends from UT

Exchange or degree-seeking students may receive a stipend for their studies from the University of Tartu. If you are receiving a stipend, please read the following information carefully.

Exchange students who have been informed beforehand that they will receive a stipend from the University of Tartu are advised to open a bank account in a local bank during the first week of the semester and insert their account number to SIS/ÕIS. Stipends are transferred to the student’s bank account. If there are any obstacles, stipends can also be paid out in cash. In any case, please consult your coordinator about which option is best for you personally.

NB! Please make sure that you insert your Estonian bank account number to SIS.

  • Students coming to study under bilateral agreements and ISEP: the stipend is paid only for the period when student lives and studies in Tartu (calculated by student being here over 15th day of the month every month)! No stipend for February/September will be paid if the student arrives later than February/September 20. No stipend for June/January is paid if student leaves in May/December. 

Erasmus ICM programme students must sign the grant agreement before they can receive the grant. Additional information about the grant and the payments is sent directly to students by the coordinator.
