Tallinn Summer and Winter School

Introduction

Summer School

Why Tallinn?

Tallinn Summer School was established in 2006 and offers a three-week program every July. The program blends an array of courses with a vibrant cultural experience and draws attendees from all over the world. The school features a broad social agenda, including museum visits, exploration of historical landmarks, and cultural sites, and weekend excursions to various Estonian natural landscapes. The school balances the academic atmosphere with a casual environment, allowing participants to learn while immersing themselves in Estonia's cultural heritage.

Tallinn University is the largest university of humanities in Tallinn and the third biggest public university in Estonia. We have more than 7,000 students (with 11% of them international), and close to 900 employees, including over 450 researchers and lecturers. Tallinn University is very strongly committed to internationalization.

As the capital and largest city in Estonia, Tallinn is a major European political, cultural, and educational center. Often called Europe’s answer to Silicon Valley, E-Estonia has the highest number of startups per person in Europe and is the birthplace of many international companies including Skype. It is also the home of the NATO Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence.
