Why should I study here?

Tallinn University was founded in 1918.  Though they just began internationalizing in 2007, their number of students from the U.S has increased each year.  Students represent 86 different countries, though most international students are from Finland.

What are the admissions criteria?

Applications are submitted online through the school website and include a motivation letter, transcripts, and a photocopy of the passport.  Engineering students also take an online multiple choice test and may be invited to a Skype interview.  All applicants from non-anglophone countries must submit English proficiency test results.  The school uses  rolling admissions, with applications due by April 15th and results announced by June 1st. 

What is student life like?

The ESN chapter at TUT offers an orientation week, trips, parties, dinners, and seminars.  In addition to ESN, there are three other student organizations geared towards international students, which are AIESEC, BEST, and AEGEE. Student clubs include cinema, debate, tennis, cycling, culture, photo, film, choir, and orchestra dance.  In addition, there are several yearly school-wide parties and events including a fashion show, international night,  a charity singing contest, an opening bash, Christmas parties, spring ball, and more. Students can join the sports club for under 30 euros a month and there are also sports clubs and teams throughout the school. 

Scholarships & Funding

Merit scholarships for 100 euros per month are available after the first semester is completed.

Housing options.

Housing is not guaranteed, so students should apply as soon as they receive their acceptance. Student residences are incredibly affordable, starting at about 100 euros a month for a double room with shared facilities and 150 for a single room with shared facilities.  Private apartments in the town range from 200–400 euros per month. 

Dining information

There are many cafeterias on campus with daily specials ranging from 1.80 to 4.50 euros. 

Additional notes.

The campus was full of activity and life when I visited, and I heard a lot of students speaking English to each other.  The campus is in a residential area about 20 minutes from Old Town, but that doesn't keep students from visiting Old Town to socialize on the weekends. Public transportation is free for residents, and there is a bus stop across the street from the buildings.

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.
