Please note that we offer traineeships only as they are in our curricula (ECTS, working hours, evaluation). Please discuss your training plan at your home university.
If you would like to take elective subjects, please take a look at our list of courses in English. Please note that we offer courses as described on our webpage - we use non-distinctive evaluation (passed/failed). It means that you will not be given a mark. An exception is the course Global Health.
We recommend you to have travel insurance. European Health Insurance Card is obligatory! In case you can not apply for a European Health Insurance Card, it is obligatory to have health insurance coverage in Estonia. The Tallinn Health Care College does not provide you with either accident insurance, health insurance nor liability insurance. Having adequate insurance is the student's responsibility.
Evaluation and the final certificate
