Activity 2.1 of Dora Plus: Acceptance of international students enrolled in degree programs leading to a master’s degree
The purpose of this activity is to provide financial assistance to international students who are pursuing their master’s degrees in Estonia. In doing so, we hope to contribute to the global sharing of information, make the local educational system more open to students from other countries, and ultimately boost the number of highly educated workers in Estonia. Because the scholarship’s main objective is to provide financial assistance with rent and other costs of living in Estonia, it is contingent on the recipient’s continued presence in the country during the duration of their academic pursuits. The Education and Youth Board is responsible for the administration of the Dora Plus program (former Archimedes Foundation). Dora Plus programme activities extend through 31.12.2022.
About the Scholarship:
Tallinn University (TLU), located in Estonia, is a forward-thinking and active research institution that plays a pioneering role in the promotion of an intelligent way of life through education, research, and a novel form of interdisciplinary cooperation. We are Tallinn’s preeminent institution for the arts and social sciences, and we provide chances for research and study that are unparalleled in their interdisciplinarity. In the same way that Estonia, a country with a population of 1.3 million people, has been recognized for its innovations in education, e-governance, and business, our university takes an unorthodox approach to addressing the difficulties posed by the modern world.
Today, Tallinn University is positioned within the top 5 percent of all of the greatest universities in the world, according to rankings provided by both QS World University and Times Higher Education. Additionally, Trinity Lutheran University is included in three subject rankings (Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, and Education), which encompass all five of our multidisciplinary research concentrations. We are able to provide some of the most original and forward-thinking English-based degree programs in Estonia and around Europe as a result of our research that cuts through traditional academic and institutional boundaries.
Students develop competence in a variety of subjects through the use of project-based learning, which is an important component of a smart lifestyle. Students in our Social Entrepreneurship program, for instance, participate in pitching competitions where they develop company models that are not only profitable but also beneficial to society. Learning in an Interdisciplinary Focused Environment, also known as LIFE, is a required course at TLU that focuses on project- and problem-based learning. In this course, students from a variety of academic departments work together with faculty members and partners from outside the university to carry out projects that address interdisciplinary issues. Our main campus can be found in the middle of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, which is Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia. Here, students live and study in the same place. Even though we live and go to school in the same city as some of Europe’s most successful and rapidly expanding businesses, the medieval Old Town of Tallinn and a baroque castle are only a few minutes’ walk away from us.
Facilities at the university that have been updated to reflect the 21st century include a contemporary learning center, classrooms that are properly equipped, computer labs, and other recreational areas located across the campus. TLU features a sophisticated production center with facilities that are state of the art as well as professional video, audio, and post-production technologies, as well as a 105-seat 4K “SuperNova” cinema hall.
University has joined the Green Academic Footprint initiative that is being run by the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe (UNICA) in order to take part in the process of incorporating the principles of sustainable development into people’s day-to-day lives. We strongly urge all members of the university community, including students, teachers, and staff, to implement environmentally friendly practices. In addition to this, Tallinn University named Estonia’s first Vice-Rector for Sustainable Development in the year 2020!
Participants come from all over the world to take part in the Tallinn Summer School, which has been running annually since 2006 and takes place over the course of three weeks during the month of July. The school offers a wide variety of classes in addition to an extensive and varied cultural program. In addition to attending a number of different social events, participants spend their weekends traveling throughout Estonia to a variety of different locations to take part in activities such as visiting museums, historical sites, and other places of cultural significance, as well as experiencing some of Estonia’s beautiful natural scenery. The Tallinn Summer School is able to maintain both a scholarly approach and a pleasant setting, allowing students to learn while simultaneously experiencing the culture of Estonia. The Tallinn Winter School provides an identical curriculum, albeit with a reduced number of classes during the month of January.
