Estonian Intensive Language Courses (ESTILC) for incoming Erasmus+ students
This Estonian winter course is meant as a preparatory course for incoming exchange students who have been selected for an Erasmus study/placement period in the ERASMUS+ programme. Comenius Assistants can also participate, provided that there are places available on the course.
The aim of the Estonian Intensive course is to teach the basics of Estonian grammar and vocabulary and at the same time provide international students with an opportunity to integrate with each other, with the Estonian culture and local social networks. The courses are financed by the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research. The format of ESTILC courses is similar to former EILC courses.
In order to apply for the ESTILC winter course (06.–24.01.2020) at the University of Tartu College of Foreign Languages and Cultures, please send the following documents electronically to our Erasmus+ coordinator Ms Kertu Niilus (kertu.niilus [ät] ut.ee):
- your application form (download)
- a PDF copy of your passport
If you haven't received a response within 3 working days, please contact us again.
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE: 31 October 2019
The list of applicants accepted to the programme will be announced within approximately a week's time after the deadline.
If the ESTILC application is earlier than the deadline of the Estonian university you're applying to, don't worry. Before confirming the list of participants accepted to the ESTILC course, we will check whether you have submitted your application to the higher education institution you have provided in your application and whether you have been accepted for your exchange semester.
Don't hesitate to contact us also after the application deadline.
NB! ESTILC courses can be attended regardless of the university you will spend your exchange semester/year. This means all Erasmus+ students coming to the University of Tartu can also choose an ESTILC course organised by other Estonian higher education institutions. As the UT College of Foreign Languages and Cultures only organises an ESTILC winter course, we highly recommend this option to those exchange students who are coming to the UT for the autumn semester (September-December/January). For more information about other ESTILC courses organised for the academic year 2019/2020 visit the homepage of the Archimedes Foundation.
If you wish to have more information about the next ESTILC course held at the UT College of Foreign Languages and Cultures, please contact our Erasmus+ Coordinator:
