Tallinn University


http://www.tlu.ee

The Tallinn University was established on 18 March 2005 as the result of a merger of several universities and research institutes in Tallinn as well as the Estonian Academic Library. Its main strengths lie in the fields of humanities and social sciences, but it also has a strong and constantly growing component of natural and exact sciences, as well as a notable tradition of teacher training and educational research. 

The University consists of 6 faculties (Fine Arts, Educational Sciences, Physical Education, Philology, Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Social Sciences), 2 academic institutes (Institute of History, Estonian Institute of Humanities), the Baltic Film and Media School as well as 4 research institutes (Institute of Estonian Demography, Institute of Ecology, Institute of Educational Research, Institute of International and Social Studies) and two regional colleges. At present, it has around 7000 students as well as more than 400 faculty members and research fellows, on the whole being the fastest growing university in the country. 

The University has committed itself to the strategic goal of becoming an international research university with a strong social conscience and a flexible and collegial environment for learning and personal growth, where considerable academic freedoms guaranteed to both the students and the faculty are balanced by strict quality requirements. One of the main aims of the university is large-scale internationalisation - with its 7 academic degree programmes and a number of shorter programmes and courses offered in the English language it is already the most international university in the Baltic area, but this number will, according to our plans, increase significantly over the next few years. Many academic positions in the university are announced for international application and the University is glad to host international visiting scholars on their sabbatical leaves or by other agreements.  

The summer schools of the university, organised independently or jointly with our international partners, such as the University of Bologna and the University College of London, have already achieved a notable reputation, and the university currently maintains 25 inter-university agreements with universities in Europe, US, Japan, Russia and several other countries as well 200 Erasmus exchange agreements with universities from all over the European Union.

The office of international relations of the Tallinn University will gladly answer any further inquiries you might have.
