What is the purpose of mobility?
The University of Tartu supports students in taking courses in other universities abroad. Mobility means spending a study period (a few weeks to a few semesters) in a foreign university. Mobility is a great opportunity to gain experiences from different countries and therefore, recommended to all students. Every student who wants to experience studying abroad needs to know that the minimum amount of credits he/she needs to take there is 15 ECTS. The courses taken in foreign universities can be reported as optional courses. In the case of similar content and learning outcomes these can be replaced with compulsory courses. The programme director and the department of academic affairs help students with the decision-making. The opportunities to study abroad are multiple, but it is easier to organise and find funding for your mobility if you choose one of our partner universities.
Which part of my study programme is recommended to pass abroad? What is the mobility module?
For Wellness and Spa Service Design and Management programme, the Mobility module (as the optional submodule 5.1) is recommended to choose for internship (10ECTS) and for optional subjects (5ECTS). If a student wants to study more and stay abroad longer, then the minimum amount of credits he/ she needs to pass is 15ECTS (up to 25ECTS) in semester.
Which semester is the best time to study abroad?
The programme structure of Wellness and Spa Service Design and Management is very simple: each semester is 30 credits – all together 120 ECTS. In order to create an optional mobility module, the college had to add subjects to the first and second semester and create more possibilities for mobility. All students are recommended to choose the mobility module for internship during the 3rd semester.
Is my study period going to be longer because of the mobility?
No, it is not.
