About Universities Estonia

  • On November 1, 2000, the non-profit organization, Universities Estonia, was founded by the University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology, Tallinn University, Estonian University of Life Sciences, Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, and Estonian Academy of Arts. The aim of the association is to contribute to the advancement of education, research, and cultural life in Estonia by representing its members and shaping their positions on matters of mutual interest. According to the statutes, council members can include founding members and those Estonian universities that provide education in bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in at least three scientific fields, while engaging in continuous and successful research and defending doctoral theses. As an organization, we consider high-quality university education to be instrumental in the development of Estonian culture and language, as well as a crucial factor for the well-being of the Estonian people and the central condition for social and economic development in Estonia. Therefore, our focus lies in collaboration to strengthen the quality and competitiveness of Estonian university education.
