Tuition fee discounts

NEWSFLASH! The Management Board of the International School of Tallinn has made a decision to offer a 10% reduction in school fees to all employees who work in the Ülemiste City Campus.

Prepayment discount

In the event of payment of the entire amount of the annual tuition fee in one installment, the prepayment discount of 5 percent (5%) of the amount of the total annual fee will apply. The family must express their interest in receiving the prepayment discount and preparedness to pay the entire amount in one installment upon entry into the tuition contract. The prepayment discount will be applicable if the entire amount is paid within 10 days after signature of the contract by the school.

Family discount

The family discount is applicable to the families and households with at least two members studying at IST. A family is formed by persons who are related as spouses or as a parent and child. A household consists of people residing at the same address who are connected by sharing the same household and raising a child together.
The family discount is applied to all children studying at IST who are included in the same family or household. The amount of the family discount will be calculated based on the entire annual fee, including the study place fee and the monthly fee.

Number of students Discount percentage Annual fee
2 students 10% 6,750 euros per student
3 students 20% 6,000 euros per student
At least 4 students 30% 5,250 euros per student

Discount due to economic reasons

If the amount of the tuition fee forms an exceptionally unproportioned share in calculation of the family’s incomes, and it is likely that the family may face difficulties in covering their other expenses after payment of the tuition fee, the school may reduce the amount of the tuition fee.
