Innovative. Interdisciplinary. International. Since 1477. These have been the University of Tuebingen’s guiding principles in research and teaching ever since it was founded. With this long tradition, the University of Tuebingen is one of the most respected universities in Germany. In 2012, its institutional strategy was successfully selected for funding in the Excellence Initiative sponsored by the German Federal and State Governments, making Tuebingen one of Germany’s eleven universities distinguished with the title of excellence. Tuebingen has also proven its status as a leading research university in many national and international competitions – in key rankings Tuebingen is listed among the best universities for the Humanities and Social Sciences as well as for Science and Medicine.
With its broad spectrum of subjects, the University of Tuebingen provides a wealth of opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. And such close cooperation on research extends beyond the University to the Tuebingen Research Campus partners and around the world. The University of Tuebingen has joint research projects at all levels with other institutions of higher education, with research institutes and with industry.
The University’s excellence in research offers optimal study conditions to students who come to Tuebingen, combined with the opportunity to emphasise individual interests along the way. The attractive study environment is reinforced by many additional services, such as the Language Centre, interdisciplinary lectures in the Studium Generale and the state-of-the-art University Library.Updated 01/04/2016 1:28pm
