Why should I study here?

The Estonian University of Life Sciences is the only university in Estonia whose priorities in academic and research activities are the sustainable development of natural resources necessary for the existence of man as well as the preservation of heritage and habitat. According to QS World University Rankings by Subject (2015), the Estonian University of Life Sciences is one of the top 100 universities in the world in the field of agriculture and forestry, ranked 51 to 100. The university also belongs to the top 1% most cited research facilities in the world, with our plant physiology professor Ulo Niinemets being the most cited Estonian researcher altogether.

What are the admissions criteria?

Admissions decisions are based on the motivation letter and the applicant's SAT score for the Biology subject test. The application deadline is May 30th.

What is student life like?

All arriving international students are assigned a buddy – an Estonian student – who helps to get the newly arrived students their bearings and adapt to the local community. Our university has a well-established international club offering various events to both international staff and students, including national events, excursions, etc. We also have great facilities for both indoor and outdoor sports, with our modern sports building being popular among weight lifters, aerobics people, and basketball players alike. If students do not want to go in for sports in a big way, they can just go jogging in the picturesque parks near the residential blocks of the university.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
