Tallinn University

一、   學校簡介


The story of the present Tallinn University dates from 15 May 2002, when the representatives of four universities and research institutions in Tallinn signed agreements, one among themselves to establish a new university in Tallinn, and one with the Ministry of Education as well as the City of Tallinn, who both promised to support the new venture.


Since 1631, when the magistrates of Tallinn declined the offer of the Swedish King Gustav Adolf II to found a university in the city (an offer their colleagues in Tartu were astute enough to accept), Tallinn had without a university bearing its name and, until 2005, the last capital city in Europe with such a lack. Of course, there was the Tallinn University of Technology (founded in 1918) as well as many other speicalised universities, while the most venerable site of learning, TartuUniversity, had historically provided for the academic needs of the country in many fields. During the whole process of the creation of the new university, indeed, heated debates continued with regard to its necessity, given the small size of the country. Finally, however, the opinion came to prevail that the spiritual and material resources of the scattered units in Tallinn would be put to much better use if they were united into one whole, and that this would enhance the quality of both the education and the research carried out in the capital of Estonia.


The founding members of the University were the Academic Library of Estonia, the EstonianAcademy of Arts, the Estonian Institute of Humanities, the Institute of History of the EstonianAcademy of Sciences and the TallinnPedagogicalUniversity. In the process, the EstonianAcademy of Arts decided to withdraw from the venture, and for a certain period, the Viljandi Academy of Culture was also involved in the talks. Even before the initiating act of TallinnUniversity, TallinnPedagogicalUniversity had signed deeds by which several research institutes – the Institute of Ecology, the Institute of Educational Research, the Institute of Estonian Demography and the Institute of International and Social Studies – came under its aegis. All in all, TallinnUniversity was born with many different heritages and as the heir to many different traditions.
