Exchange student LLP/Erasmus exchange Other bilateral agreements Free-movers NB! You have the same rights as TUT degree students, at the same time you hold the status of your home university student, and you are here only for ONE semester or a YEAR!!!
How to find the right room? TUT room marking system consists of the building number, floor and room number. For example, IRO U02-201 2nd building, II floor (in Estonia Ist floor is ground lever floor), room no 01. Extensions of buildings are marked with letter B after the building no. The numbering system changed this semester at TUT, therefore we are sorry if there are any misunderstandings.
