The Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies offers students the opportunity to study abroad as long as it is connected to their current study programme.
Students can use contracts between universities and the Erasmus higher education programme to study abroad. In both cases, the student does not have to pay for tuition and will generally receive a scholarship. Additionally, a student can use different scholarships to apply to other universities. The student remains a student at the University of Tartu while taking part of a student exchange programme, meaning that the student is not pursuing a degree in another country.
More information about becoming an exchange student or studying abroad can be found on the UT main webpage, and you can contact the Erasmus coordinator Siiri Maimets, 737 5199, siiri.maimets [ät] ut.ee.
