Degrees in Estonian
At the undergraduate level, University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy offers Professional Higher Education (240 ECTS, 4-years). The advantage of professional higher education over more academic degree is its stronger link with the job market. Practical work in the actual work environment comprises at least 15% of the professional higher education curriculum. Both, bachelor's degree and professional higher education diploma will give the graduates equal access to the next level of higher education - master's studies.
All students admitted to the programme in Estonian, who do not speak Estonian language, need to complete the Intensive Estonian Language Course first. The courses are offered on the basis of English and Russian. Please see here for more information on admission requirements.
