Who are eligible to apply: free places are offered only for intermediate or advanced students, who already have at least A2 knowledge of Estonian. We do not offer the free places for beginners. All applicants must send a confirmation letter from their Estonian lecturer or teacher.
In order to apply for a free place you must complete in our application system:

IMPORTANT: In case the applicant has no preference for either Tallinn or Tartu university courses, and can participate in one or the other, he or she should fill a separate application for both universities. A free post will be granted for one course only.
In case the applicant wishes some other form of accommodation than the bed in a double room provided by the Estonian Institute, he or she has to pay the difference. If the applicant does not need accommodation, he or she is asked to state this in the application.
