Language course ESTILC

All students who have been selected for a study/placement period in the ERASMUS+ programme can apply for the Estonian Intensive Language Course ESTILC. The course contributes to a more successful mobility period in Estonia as the acquired knowledge helps students to obtain further knowledge of the region and the people. ESTILC is usually held before the new semester begins and facilitates exchange students’ social, cultural, and academic integration into Estonia. The courses are free of charge (the organiser may ask for a small fee for the cultural programme)!


Evaluation system

A subject is considered passed after a positive result at a graded or pass/fail examination. The number of credit points awarded does not depend on the grade. Testing methods and assessment criteria are specified in the subject syllabus.

Positive result
Examination: A “excellent”; B “very good”; C “good”; D “satisfactory”; E “sufficient”
Assessment: “passed” (P) / “arvestatud” (A)

Negative result
Examination: F “insufficient”; “not attended” (MI)
Assessment: “not passed” (MA); “not attended” (MI)

Evaluation results will be inserted in the Study Information System (ÕIS) by the lecturer of the subject or the chair of the examination panel. Students can view the results of their examinations/assessments under Student View in the Study Information System.

NB! Please note that many subjects are assessed as Pass/Fail and it cannot be changed individually for students who need grades (A-F).
