Students with fewer opportunities
Starting from 2022 projects there is a possibility for incoming students to receive a fewer opportunity top-up for their Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) grant in Estonia. For such top-up the student has to fall under one of the groups mentioned below and has to present a confirmation about it. The incoming students that have the right for the top-up in Estonia are: • low-income background/household students (receipients of their national low-income support/grant, but not limited to that) • students who are parents of minor child/children • students with a foster care background
To confirm that they fall under one of the categories the student has to fill in a form of Declaration of Honour to confirm the need and right to receive the top-up. The form has to be signed by the student and their sending institution (the higher education institution they are enrolled to in their home/study country) and presented to TTK UAS.
*Currently not applicable for students from Albania and Israel.
Erasmus programme requires all participants to have insurance coverage for health insurance. Health insurance should not only include health coverage during the stay on international mobility, but the coverage should also take into account situations like repatriation or special medical intervention. For non-EU students, this normally means contracting private insurance for their stay.
Liability insurance and accident insurance are recommended for all kinds of mobilities. Liability and accident insurances cover damages caused by the participant or to the participant during their stay abroad. Varying regulation of these insurances is in place in different countries and participants run the risk of not being covered by standard schemes. In addition to the above, insurance against the loss or theft of documents, travel tickets, and luggage is recommended.
Students from outside the EU/EEA whose period of stay in Estonia is under 12 months need to apply for a D-visa at the Estonian embassy before coming to Estonia. Requirements for the D-visa can be found here.
The list of Estonian embassies handling visa applications can be found here.
If you are a non-EU student, who does not need a visa to enter Estonia, you can apply for a long-term D-visa also in Estonia (booking an appointment beforehand online is recommended). However, we strongly advise obtaining a visa before arrival in Estonia even if you can enter Estonia without a visa.
Unfortunately, the holders of D-visa are not eligible to apply for a Temporary Residence Permit. This means that you will not receive an Estonian ID card and you cannot register as a resident of Tallinn.
