University of Tartu and Tartu 2024

The University of Tartu is the largest and oldest university in Estonia, and the only Estonian universitas in the world. As one of Europe's leading research universities, we have our say on the international research landscape and our close international research collaboration allows us to tackle global challenges and be a breeding ground for new ideas and innovation. As a national university, we are the centre of academic spirit and national culture in Estonia.

Tartu is a true student town where every one in five residents studies or works at the University of Tartu. The university has nearly 100,000 alumni who spread the knowledge they have gained here in Tartu and around the world. We cooperate with the city government in creating an attractive and sustainable environment. We look after our cultural values and demonstrate them to visitors.

Come and experience the spirit of Tartu at the university!
