There are three study levels at the University of Tartu:
A bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree is awarded by the university to a person who has completed the curriculum at the corresponding academic level. An academic level is a qualification within the higher education system.

Students who have completed Medicine or Dentistry may continue to doctoral programmes or enter residency training to receive a qualification of specialist doctor. Residency is a three- to five-year programme.
Students who have completed the curricula of Pharmacy or Primary School Teacher may continue to a doctoral programme.
