University cuts degree programmes citing lack of funding

Tallinn University (TLÜ) has cancelled six Estonian-language bachelor and masters degree programmes this autumn due to lack of funding, the institute’s senate council decided this week. Universities have complained about underfunding for years, reports ERR.

Degree programmes in information sciences, integrated handicrafts and technologies, environmental management and recreation management have been scrapped by the university for the 2022-23 academic year.

“Unfortunately, not opening these curricula was an inevitable choice because with the available resources the university is no longer able to carry out the same amount of studies,” said Helen Joost, academic affairs manager at TLÜ.
