Masters of Software Engineering

University of Tartu and Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia

Fees & Scholarships

If you have to pay tuition fees, it will be 2000 euros per semester or 70 euros per credit point in the academic year 2018-19. The Master´s programme consists of 120 credit-points (30 credits per semester nominally).

However, when it comes to tuition fees and scholarships, we have several good news:

And if that’s not enough, here is a third good news:

  • You don’t even have to apply for a tuition-waiver nor most of the stipend-paying scholarships. All students who apply for admission in this Master’s program are automatically considered candidates for tuition-waiver and stipend-paying scholarships. The tuition-waiver and stipend-paying scholarships will be offered to the top candidates in the ranking. So all you need to do is to submit your application, and wait for the notification, which will tell you whether or not you are admitted to the programme, with or without tuition-waiver scholarship, and with or without stipend-paying scholarship. Simple! You would only need to apply separately for European Social Fund Scholarship and Industrial Master’s Programme.

And if you want even more good news, here go yet another three:

  • Once you have started the Master’s program, you may apply for other scholarships. Some of our industry partners (e.g. Cybernetica and Playtech) offer scholarships to enrolled students based on their academic performance. Other scholarships include government study allowances and scholarships granted by University of Tartu’s foundation.
  • Information about other scholarships is available here.
