MA Scholarships Software Engineering, University of Tartu, Estonia

Deadline: 16 April, 2013
Open to: students all over the world
Fund: Full tution + additional grant for excellent students

The Master´s program is jointly delivered by the two largest public universities in Estonia – University of Tartu and Tallinn University of Technology. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a joint degree signed by both universities. The international Master`s program in Software Engineering aims at providing students with advanced software engineering and management skills, as well as specialized skills in two major application domains: enterprise systems and embedded real-time systems.


Full-time students admitted to this Master’s program in 2013 will automatically receive a tuition-waiving scholarship. One important disclaimer though: this tuition-waiving scholarship is for students who complete a full-time study load of 30 credit-points (ECTS) per semester. Students who do not complete 30 credit-points per semester will pay tuition fees of € 65 per missing credit point below the required 30 ECTS per semester (fee to be confirmed in February 2013). Past history indicates that over 90% of international students who study full-time in this program complete the required 30 ECTS per semester.

At least 12 stipend-paying scholarships are available. These include scholarships of € 300 per month provided by the IT Academy program as well as alternative scholarships of € 288 per month provided by the DoRa 9 program.

You don’t even have to apply for a scholarship. All students who apply for admission in this Master’s program are automatically considered candidates for scholarships. The top-ranked candidates according to past academic performance and motivation are offered a scholarship together with their admission.

Once you have started the Master’s program, you may apply for other scholarships. Some of our industry partners (e.g. Playtech) offer scholarships to enrolled students based on their academic performance. Other scholarships include government study allowances andRAEFOND scholarships for international students.

    1. Hi Aminu,

      I hope you are aware that the deadline for this scholarship was over in June. However, check out other opportunities here:
      And about the language requirements: I would recommend you to address studyinfo[@] to ask them if your language skills are sufficient for them or not.

        1. Dear Krenari,

          This open call has been updated just recently. As you can see Kristina's comment is old over a year. We updated the post the previous week, thus the new deadline is in April, so best of luck if you are applying.

          Kind regards,
          Mladiinfo team
