Studying as a visiting student at TalTech
Six Estonian higher education institutions (Tallinn University of Technology, Tallinn University, University of Tartu, Estonian Academy of Arts, Estonian University of Life Sciences, Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre) have concluded an agreement under which students can listen to lectures in another higher education institution, where the level of the quality of studies is mutually acceptable.
The students of other higher education institutions can study in Tallinn University of Technology through Open University, where a tuition fee is charged for the studies.
How to become a visiting student at TalTech?
To become a visiting student of physical education, you need to submit a referral form.
A student can get a referral form from his/her home institution. Prior approval of the referral form is not required for declaring the physical education course at TalTech. The referral form shall be submitted to TalTech's Office of Academic Affairs (Ehitajate tee 5, room IV-106), where the person will be registered as a TalTech visiting student. You can also send a digitally signed referral form to the e-mail address: erge dot edesi at taltech dot ee.
