Lecturer FAQ


This page should answer to all questions regarding teaching at Estonian IT College. Feel free to add missing information

What's my workload

As per TUT rules the workload for student means:

  • 3 ECTS - 78 academic hours of workload
  • 6 ECTS - 156 academic hours of workload
  • 9 ECTS - 234 academic hours of workload

TUT rules also specify maximum contact lessons:

  • 3 ECTS - 2 academic hours per week or 32 academic hours per semester
  • 6 ECTS - 4 academic hours per week or 64 academic hours per semester
  • 9 ECTS - 6 academic hours per week or 96 academic hours per semester

It is possible to cram 3 ECTS course to half-semester, in which case the per week hours are doubled. In other words 3 ECTS course given in 2 months means 4 academic hours per week.

At the moment Merike is in charge of the schedule. The schedule is of course not hard coded and it is possible to make changes. Please forward your requests to Merike. You can check if your timetable at and by typing your name into Lecturer field.

What's my salary

Part time lecturers (which most of you are) are paid in the end of the semester (january and may ?). A formula is used to calculate the payments which takes into account ECTS, number of students and your academic degree. The contracts will be signed in the beginning of semester once the number of students is known, that's beginning of February for Spring semester and September for Fall semester.
