Get into contact with the Police and Border Guard Board (Politsei ja piirivalveamet) and apply for an Estonian ID code and then open a bank account in an Estonian bank. All this information has to be sent to Signe Bergert (signe dot bergert at taltech dot ee). Then the contract is formalised and the payment for scholarship can be made.
The payments for scholarship are made on the last day of each month.
The first step is trying to use the “Help” function of ÕIS. Which can be accessed like this:
If you are an international student on Dora/specialty scholarships, then you have to earn 30 ECTS on every semester.
If you are not on scholarship then the minimum is 24 ECTS per semester.
Yes, this is possible, yet there needs to be a relevant explanation and fit with the overall objectives.
There can be a lot of different tasks to manage at the same time so it can get stressful. Evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and plan your studies from the very beginning. In case you are not able to fulfil the tasks sufficiently or feel that the studies are not for you then do not worry, come talk to us and we will try to figure it out.
Yes, the course needs to be declared again. If you declare it within the nominal duration of your studies, then you do not have to pay for that. If you have exceeded the nominal duration of studies (you continue as an extern), then you need to pay for the credits.
Information about the fees:
You can choose two courses of 4 ECTS or some other course that interests you but does not belong to the study programme. This needs to be accepted by the study program manager.
No. The course Research Methods I is the prerequisite for the course Research Methods II.

Yes, you can conduct and declare the internship in any semester, but nevertheless be aware of the ECTS requirements.
If you currently are employed at an e-health technologies related position (healthcare enterprise, startup, government institution, TalTech e-medicine centre etc) then this employment can be taken into account as an internship. Nevertheless you have to fulfil the paperwork and conduct a summary of the internship.
Please see more information here:
In order to formulate and declare your internship then you have to make an internship report and provide internship supervisor’s evaluation.
The reporting materials are available here
There can be one supervisor and one co-supervisor. If the main supervisor is from outside of the faculty then it needs to be confirmed with the program manager Priit Kruus (priit dot kruus at taltech dot ee) in due time.
The supervisor of the thesis has to have at least a Master’s degree or the respective qualification.
