Tallinn University is the largest university of humanities in Tallinn and the third biggest public university in Estonia. We have more than 7,500 students (with 9.5% of them international), and over 800 employees, including nearly 400 researchers and lecturers.
Wishing to contribute more to the society, we have set a goal to become the promoter of intelligent lifestyle in Estonia. We interpret intelligent lifestyle as making research-based decisions in order to improve the society in general and the well-being of its citizens.
In the past 13 years, Tallinn University has merged a number of study and research institutions. This has significantly widened the scope of the responsibility the university holds, starting from teacher education and ending with choreography.
Our five interdisciplinary focus fields are educational innovation, digital and media culture, cultural competences, healthy and sustainable lifestyle and society and open governance
