The circle of the international contacts of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities extends from the Baltic Sea to North America. The aim of international collaboration is to broaden the scope of internationalisation into all core activities by developing partnerships with international organisations, cooperation networks and higher education institutions around the world.
Since the 1990s, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities has been working in close collaboration with several embassies and foundations in Estonia and abroad. The embassies and foundations have been very helpful in selecting and financing our foreign lecturers, upgrading libraries and organizing conferences. Their support has opened different academic exchange opportunities for our students and staff.
A lot of international activities are based on bilateral agreements. In addition to academic and educational collaboration, joint scientific projects, preparation of scientific publications, participation in conferences and summer schools, these agreements also include the exchange of academic staff and students in order to give them the possibility of getting first-hand international experience. Within the Erasmus programme, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities is collaborating with more than 150 higher education institutions.
Faculty of Arts and Humanities highly appreciates the kind contribution they have received from the international cooperation partners and hopes to continue the fruitful cooperation in the future.
