Application fee

International candidates applying to bachelor's or master's programmes at the University of Tartu are required to pay a non-refundable application fee of EUR 100.

The application fee is required to facilitate the admissions process and will not be refunded, regardless of the admission result.

Applicants are exempt from the application fee if:
1) they have Estonian citizenship or
2) they have completed the previous study level in Estonia or
3) they have been admitted to the same study programme and sent hard copies of their application to UT in 2022 or 
4) they have been enrolled in the University of Tartu in the same study level in the academic year 2020/2021 or later.

Please note that there are no additional exemptions from the application fee.

An application will only be processed after the fee has been received by the university.

How can I pay the application fee?

  • make sure you are able to submit all required documents by the application deadline before paying the application fee
  • paying the application fee alone does not grant the right to enter into competition, all other necessary documents (such as proof of English language proficiency and educational documents) must be submitted by the given deadline as well
  • University of Tartu does not extend the deadline for submitting the required documents due to COVID-19 related problems
  • applicants who are unable to submit the required documents by the application deadline this year are encouraged to apply next year
  • paying the fee of EUR 100 enables to choose two study programmes at maximum. All applicants are expected to give careful attention to the chosen programme(s)’ admission requirements prior to making the payment
  • the university will not refund payments made in error
  • unsuccessful applications which are resubmitted in the following admission period are not exempt from the requirement to pay the application fee

You can also pay the fee via bank transfer. Once you have made the payment, please upload the payment receipt to the “documents” on your DreamApply application. There are no strict requirements with regards to the format of the document.
