Located on a compact campus within walking distance of Tallinn’s UNESCO-listed medieval Old Town, TLU currently counts ca. 8,000 full-time students and 13,000 more students in further education.
Tallinn University is one the most international universities in the Baltic States, with a student body representing 54 countries and the most international faculty in the region, according to Quacquarelli Symonds. Quacquarelli Symonds also ranks Tallinn University among the three most research intensive universities in the Baltics and among the world’s 200 leading universities in Sociology.

Behind the university stands the sea gate of Estonia – Port of Tallinn. Only a few hundred metres away you can find the peaceful Kadriorg Park and the Presidential Palace.
