The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre offers study opportunities for Ukrainian war refugees

Since the brutal Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24 February, the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre has been actively involved in helping students who are citizens of Ukraine and has offered study opportunities to war refugees arriving from Ukraine.

Although the regular admission for 2022 has ended, it is still possible for Ukrainian war refugees to apply for admission on the basis of VÔTA. In particular, this applies to Ukrainian students whose studies have been interrupted due to the war in their homeland. Admission to EAMT depends on the availability of free study places and study opportunities in a specific specialty.
