The completion of the curriculum in the prescribed volume is assessed at the faculty after one standard study year (two studied semesters) has passed since the matriculation of the student or the last transfer to the next study year. The study load is checked at the end of the academic year.
Completion of the curriculum for studying free of charge is evaluated in Estonian curricula and for students of English curricula who have a tuition-waiver student place at the end of each semester of study as of the date preceding the start of the following semester. In order to continue without paying students must have completed the required amount of curriculum.
Those who fail to fulfil the requirements for part-time study by completing the minimum amount of the curriculum are exmatriculated due to lack of progress.
If free places have become available in a particular curriculum (if more students have dropped out than expected), then from the second semester the free places will be filled via a competitive process.
