The city Tartu is rather small city and thus everything is quite near by. I am studying law and my classes take place 15 minute walk away from the city center. I can not talk for non-law students but i personally feel that teachers here are all in to teaching. We have online student-professor forums, where students can ask professors questions at any time. There are of course some exceptions but overall I feel like the professors here really care about their students and the outcome of their studies. I am still studying in the uni and I feel that the law course that I am taking has met my expectations. It sure is hard at some times but it is also very interesting so I am not complaining. In Tartu there is also quite a colorful student life and this is one of the main reasons why I would suggest studying in Tartu for all the out-going people. Twice a year there is 2/3 week long program called ”Tudengipäevad” (”Student’s Days). Our uni students organize different events such as beer yoga, silent disco, cooking competitions etc.View more
This is a university with a long tradition in teaching. Spread all over Tartu city you will feel like they are one. The programs of Computer Science and Software Engenieering are especially good for the Estonian and European Market. Although you should take in consideration that studies here require a lot of time. It is the university policy to have in every course almost weekly homework and tests so your knowledge is checked constantly. You can not take long breaks in the middle of the semester.View more
In the field of natural sciences there’s a lot of theoretical knowledge needed to be gained and it’s not always followed by practical work. This is one of the aspects I find a bit problematic. On the other hand, the teaching of analytical chemistry is very good and we have some really good programmes for master’s – EACH (Excellence in Analytical Chemistry) and AMS (Applied Measurement Science) with top level lecturers.View more
I really like this university, most of the lecturers are really good as they can make their subjects interesting. The city itself is really student-friendly and you can feel a true student vibe there all the time. Also, the university has a great points-time scale, at least in the field of Political Studies.View more
I studied economics and would say that University of Tartu gives a good basis on it. I got to learn different theories and models on different spheres of economics and running a business. Personally for me the studies were a bit too theoretical. Therefore I was really active in a NGO AEGEE-Tartu, which allowed me to practice what I had learned in classes.View more

I can say that this university has a pleasant atmosphere, where you will get a good quality education. The University of Tartu offers a huge amount of different specializations and high-quality lecturers. Studies can be taken in English or Estonian.
In Tartu are a lot of friendly students, thus you will never feel alone, everyone is supportive including teachers and students.
Studies are hard but at the same time quite interesting.
Personally, I recommend UT for getting a degree and I am sure that diploma of this university will be competitive on the labor market of EU countries and other states.
Tartu has all the environment for the international students. Dormitories are quite cheap and convenient. There are a lot of places to visit and things to try. However, sometimes you may get into trouble if you speak neither Estonian nor Russian.
Studying process is not boring at all because you’re always surrounded by different cultures and you can participate in a number of exciting events, that are organized by students and ESN. Lecturers and the teacher assistants will always try to help you with achieving your goals.
The campus is good, but the main library is not open since 2 years…. that there are good facilities but buildings are not located all close. Most courses are quite informative, however some of them overrated. But it is not only about education, it is as well about people around an atmosphere of University town where people are mostly students.View more
High qualified professors who help and can give some piece of advice. A lot of different courses in English. Some courses are really complicated so it is better to cooperate with others.A lot of clubs where you can spend a night. Problems to find a good part-time job without knowledge of Estonia but if you need money you can work at the warehouse.View more
