The Estonian Academy of Arts (EAA), 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 enrolled at the Estonian Academy of Arts and are taught by 89 professors, associate professors, teachers and lecturers from Estonia and abroad. EAA offers 50 well-equipped workshops with 38 skilled technicians on hand to assist students.
