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.

During this spring and summer, we have accepted a total of 20 new Ukrainian students for various music curricula. Most of them will start their studies at EAMT at the beginning of this academic year. Thanks to the support allocated by the Ministry of Education and Research, EAMT is able to offer them free studies in 2022/23. A total of 24 Ukrainian students are currently studying at the academy.

Ukrainian students can study both in Estonian and in English curricula. EAMT offers students in-depth study of the Estonian language and the opportunity to improve their English language skills.

Students who are citizens of Ukraine have the opportunity to apply for a need-based special grant. EAMT also pays incoming students a one-time financial support.

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.
