How to apply for Erasmus exchange (studies)?
Ask the International Office in your university to help you. If you want to come with Erasmus+, ask the International Office in your university if they have a bilateral agreement with Eesti Maaülikool or check our list of Erasmus+ partner universities. Before you start appyling for Erasmus exchange at EMÜ, your home university has to send us a nomination (see deadlines below).
How to apply for Erasmus traineeships?
Traineeships in our veterinary clinics (small animal, production animal and equine clinics) are possible at certain times of the year. For details, see the information on our veterinary traineeships website.

Documented evidence is needed to demonstrate your English language proficiency - an official letter from a language instructor at your university stating the student's language level on CEFR scale or if you have taken an international test of the English language (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.), please send us a copy of the test score.

In the application, you're required to choose the courses you're interested in following while at EMÜ under "Proposed study plan".
After your application has been reviewed and you've been approved for all courses, the coordinator at EMÜ will inform you when it's time to prepare your Learning Agreement.
Note! Please do not fill in the Learning Agreement for studies before you have filled the study plan on SoleMOVE and have received confirmation of the study plan from the coordinator at the Estonian University of Life Sciences.
After submitting the documents
Once you have submitted the application, we will review it. After it's been approved, we will notify you about sending us your learning agreement and when that has been signed by all parties, we will send you the Letter of Acceptance by e-mail.
