As an Estonian university, Tallinn University offers and develops education and research primarily in the Estonian language and based on Estonia's needs. Given the developments in higher education, globalisation also plays a major role.
Tallinn University is a partner in 14 European Union regional programme projects and coordinates one of them, titled Learning Layers. We also participate in the EU Horizon 2020 framework programme both as a partner and as a coordinator. The university has agreements with 43 partner universities in 21 countries and more than 490 Erasmus+ partnership agreements; we are a member of four international networks of higher education institutions, and our researchers and lecturers actively contribute to the activities of their professional networks.
As a promoter of intelligent lifestyle, Tallinn University values the free time of its members: the university has a literary award for its employees, lecturers and alumni, its symphony orchestra has been chosen as the Estonian Orchestra of the Year, and we have multiple internationally recognised choirs and art groups and several Estonian championship level sports teams.
