After graduation students can pursue a wide variety of careers internationally. Students have an opportunity to continue their education in a residency programme in Estonia or abroad and become doctor-specialists; study medicine at doctoral level, or have a job requiring a medical degree.
Programme fee is 12,000 EUR/year. Instructions for fee paying students are given here. There are no tuition waivers for Medicine.
NB! Applicants who are not citizens of the member states of the EU, EEA or Switzerland and do not hold a long-term residence permit in any of these countries are required to pay half of the semester fee after they have been informed of the admission decision (offer) via DreamApply. The official admission letter (necessary for visa application) will only be issued once the University of Tartu has received this payment. The second half of the semester fee is to be paid after the studies have started, by 20 September.
“The MD degree programme of the University of Tartu gives you an exclusive chance to empower yourself with theoretical and practical skills that are necessary in both clinical and scientific field. Acquiring immense amount of hands-on experience in smaller groups raises self-competent professionals for the future of medicine. The MD degree which we’ll obtain from the University of Tartu will not limit us to only one specific field, but will guide us to explore various opportunities in research, teaching and clinical sciences.”
