TARTU FOLK HIGH SCHOOL / TARTU RAHVAÜLIKOOL

Tartu Folk High School aims to implement the idea of lifelong learning and welcomes adults of all ages. Our school is open to all who wish to develop their talents, refresh their knowledge, or learn something new in order to cope with life. We offer various possibilities for self-improvement that are connected with work or leisure time. In addition to training, we organise cultural events, exhibitions, and concerts. We also host summer schools in beautiful places in the Estonian countryside.

TFHS was established in 1987. During the first 14 years, it was known as Tartu Cultural University. In 2001 the Tartu Cultural University Association, Turku Adult Training Foundation, and Tartu City Government created the independent foundation, Tartu Folk High School.

Today TFHS is the biggest training centre in South Estonia. TFHS has been continuously developing a modern, professional adult training centre that provides high-quality continuing education to meet adult educational, cultural, social, and economic needs.

TFHS is a founder of the Folk High Schools Union, which is a member of the Estonian Non-Formal Adult Educational Association.

TFHS has participated in different local and international programmes (The European Social Fund, EU Lifelong Learning Programme, Central Baltic Interreg IV A Programme, etc.). Projects. More information about international co-operation, please contact Ena Drenkhan: ena@rahvaylikool.ee
