Tallinn University was established by a decision of the parliament of Estonia on March 18, 2005 when a number of Tallinn educational and research institutions were consolidated into a single institution. Now Tallinn University is the largest university of humanities and social sciences in Tallinn and the third biggest public university in Estonia. Tallinn University is an advocate and planner of intelligent lifestyle in Estonia, supporting the sustainability of our society as well as individual self-realisation. As a result, the university has directed its resources and activities into five focus fields:
- educational innovation,
- cultural competences,
- digital and media culture,
- healthy and sustainable lifestyle,
- society and open governance.
At our university, longest traditions of teacher training in Estonia and the only film and media school in the Baltic countries exist side by side. We value innovation and interdisciplinarity in order to offer internationally competitive education based on research excellence. We believe in individual approach to students, which also involves a major focus on thesis supervision and the feedback process at all study levels.
We have approximately 900 international students in degree and exchange studies from more than 60 countries. Every 10th academic person is of foreign background. Active international cooperation, well-known guest lecturers and our unique bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programmes in English help to create the multicultural university community.
We have close academic collaboration with various international institutions abroad, and bilateral cooperation agreements with 55 partner universities in 30 countries worldwide.
