How is the reception?

Completion of elective courses at Tallinn Health Care College for upper secondary school students also gives extra points in the admission process.

How does learning happen?
Learning to become a health professional is largely done through a variety of practical activities. For practical training, Tallinn Health Care College has a high-tech simulation centre, which allows students to act out and analyse different real-life situations. All this makes learning to become a health professional immensely rewarding and exciting! In addition, all the curricula at Tallinn Health School are internationalised, so our students have a great opportunity to do their internships abroad. You can find out more about the curricula of each curriculum on our website by selecting 'Curricula and Curriculum Council' in the curriculum sub-menu
