Most of the BA curricula require a good command of the Estonian language, including the major and minor of Classical philology. International exchange students and full-time students whose programmes are taught in English are welcome to join our elective courses taught in English or other foreign languages.
The college offers three MA programmes for language specialists: European languages and cultures, Teacher of Foreign Languages and Translation and Interpreting Studies. Since 2017, the programme of European Languages and Cultures is in English, which means learners who have not yet had the chance to learn Estonian can apply as well. Here you can find all the details and requirements.
