Estonian Universities of Applied Sciences start cooperating while teaching exchange students


On 22 August TTK UAS, the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences and Tallinn Health Care College signed a co-operation agreement which aims to promote mutual cooperation when teaching international exchange students studying in Estonia.
According to the co-operation agreement, exchange students studying in Estonia can, according to their study contract, take optional subjects in a partner institution of their host institution of professional higher education.
The three undersigned institutions of professional higher education have mutual recognition for the courses passed, credits acquired and the results are regarded as equal to those passed and acquired at the host institution of professional higher education.
Terje Kaelep, the head of the higher education unit of Centre for Educational Programs Archimedes Foundation, said co-operation like this is appreciated when hosting Erasmus students and it also makes Estonia even more popular than it has been for the students coming here. “An approach like this helps to balance the number of Erasmus students going from and coming to Estonia when considering separate universities,” Kaelep added.
The co-operation agreement was signed by Enno Lend, rector of TTK UAS, Lauri Tabur, rector of the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences and Ülle Ernits, rector of Tallinn Health Care College.
