Tallinn Summer and Winter School

Tallinn Summer School


Since 2006, Tallinn University has organised an International Summer School every July. Taking place in the most beautiful time of the year, Tallinn Summer School offers a 3-week programme, which includes several courses in various fields and provides a fascinating cultural programme that includes recreational trips. The summer courses are designed in a way that gives students a chance to get a taste of the university’s degree courses, but also offers outstanding specialists an opportunity to present Estonia to a wider audience. The school’s ambiance is always casual and relaxed, while still concentrating on a scholastic approach.

The most important aspect of Tallinn Summer School is to bring together a diverse array of students from all over the world to stimulate and encourage innovative discussion and debate. Every year more than 300 people from around 50 different countries gather in Tallinn to take part in the courses, recreational workshops and active student life. Top quality lecturers, interesting tourist attractions, lively receptions, weekend trips - all carefully selected and designed for students and summer school participants – the entire event is “Positively Surprising!” The school will guide and support you through this exciting experience.



Tallinn Winter School


If you happen to have a busy summer schedule, then a similar programme is also offered each year in January at Tallinn Winter School. The first ever winter school in 2010 proved to be very popular, not least because Tallinn had a picturesque covering of white snow at the time! The crisp weather combined with the warm and friendly atmosphere certainly makes participation in the Winter School a very memorable experience!
