Nope.  SSDT is just the BI tools with the Visual Studio-looking UI, you have to install SQL Server first, then SSDT.
A developers license of SQL Server can be purchased on amazon.com for all versions 2008 onwards for about $50.

No, SSDT is a free download and does not require a license.
SQL Server does require a license, and afaik must be installed before SSDT can be installed.
