The university now known as Tallinn University was created in 2005, though the history of the university is much longer. Tallinn University developed as the result of the merger of several research and development institutions in Tallinn. Tallinn University’s main academic strengths lie in the fields of humanities and social sciences, as well as a strong and constantly growing competence in the field of the natural and exact sciences. The university has a notable tradition of teacher training and educational research being an innovator in Estonian education and the largest provider of teacher education since 1919. Study at Tallinn University is research-based with an emphasis on practical training and a cross-disciplinary approach.

Tallinn University is the third largest university in Estonia, consisting of 6 schools and 1 college. Wishing to contribute more to society, we have set the goal of becoming the promoter of intelligent lifestyle in Estonia. The term Intelligent Lifestyle stands for making research-based decisions in order to improve society in general and the well-being of its citizens. To achieve this, we have formed five interdisciplinary research based focus fields: educational innovation, digital and media culture, cultural competences, healthy and sustainable lifestyle, society and open governance.

We have more than 7,000 students (with 11% of them international), and over 800 employees, including nearly 400 researchers and lecturers.

In order to ensure and enhance our international teaching and learning capabilities, Tallinn University collaborates with various institutes abroad, having bilateral cooperation agreements with 43 partner universities from across the globe. We participate in the Erasmus Programme.

Tallinn University offers qualified international students 39 study programmes taught in English (6 Bachelor’s programmes, 18 Master’s programmes, 15 PhD programmes). In addition, Tallinn Summer School offers a 3-week programme in July, which includes courses in various fields presented by the best Estonian and foreign internationally acclaimed academics, opinion leaders and intellectuals.
