The Estonian Academy of Arts (EKA), founded in 1914, is the only public university in Estonia offering higher education in fine arts, design, architecture, media, visual studies, art culture, cultural heritage and conservation. Located in the capital city, Tallinn, it is an active study and research institution and the leading national centre of innovation in visual culture.
Nearly 1,100 students are currently enrolled at the Estonian Academy of Arts and are taught by 89 professors, associate professors, teachers and lecturers from Estonia and abroad. Studies take place in small groups of carefully selected students, and the Estonian Academy of Arts prides itself on the low student-to-professor ratio. EKA offers eight Master’s programmes taught in English: Design & Crafts, Animation, Contemporary Art, Interaction Design, Making Space, and Urban Studies.
