Program Description:

University of Tartu

TAR

The University of Tartu or Tartu Ülikool (UT) was founded in 1632 by the Swedish King, Gustavus Adolphus.  It belongs to the top three per cent of world's best universities (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2012-13).

UT is Estonia's leading centre of research and training. It preserves the culture of the Estonian people and spearheads the country's reputation in research and provision of higher education.

As Estonia's national university, UT stresses the importance of international co-operation and partnerships with reputable research universities all over the world. Whilst Talinn is the national capital of Estonia, Tartu has long been the cultural and educational capital of this Baltic state.
 

Did you know...

The Academia Gustaviana, as the University of Tartu was originally known, in the then Swedish province of Livonia, was the second university founded in the Swedish Empire, following Uppsala University on the Swedish mainland.  Swedish influence in the region was succeeded by both German and Russian interests in the 18th and 19th centuries before UT became recognised as the official university of a newly independant Estonia in 1918 after the fall of the Russian Czarist Empire.
