All courses are accredited in accordance with the European Credit Transfer System.

ECTS – a common language for academic recognition.

ECTS, the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, was developed by the European Commission in order to provide common procedures to guarantee academic recognition of studies abroad. It provides a way of measuring and comparing learning achievements and transferring them from one institution to another. This is achieved through the use of common ECTS credit units and a common ECTS grading scale. ECTS also improves access to information on foreign curricula.

A Tallinn University Certificate of Achievement is also awarded to students for any courses they complete.
