The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre suspends the admission of citizens of the Russian Federation and Belarus
24. Mar 2022
The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre is shocked by the events that are currently taking place in Ukraine in connection with the Russian aggression.
On March 23, the Senate of the EAMT adopted a decision that citizens of the Russian Federation and Belarus who do not have a residence permit or international protection in any of the Member States of the European Union cannot apply to study at the university during the academic year 2022/2023. Students already studying in Estonia are not affected by the decision.
The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre will make every effort to contribute to assisting students from Ukraine in accordance with the guidelines of the Republic of Estonia and the European Union on admitting Ukrainian refugees and offering them social guarantees and study opportunities. The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre cooperates with the Ministry of Education and Research and other Estonian universities in this regard. In connection with this, the Academy has amended the provisions of applying for, awarding and paying scholarships and study grants. The Academy offers support and psychological counseling to Ukrainian students already studying at EAMT.
A charity concert with works by Estonian and Ukrainian authors was held at the Great Hall of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre in support of Ukraine on March 6. The ticket revenue was donated by the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre Foundation with the help of the Estonian Red Cross.
