The University of Tübingen is one of the oldest and most respected academic institutions in Europe and one of Germany's Universities of Excellency.

Historically known as a cradle of European Humanism and birthplace of German Idealism, Tübingen’s traditionally strong standing in the Humanities and Social Sciences is supplement today by equally dynamic and high-profile core research in the fields of Natural and Life Sciences. The University founded Germany's first independent Science Faculty in 1863 and seven Nobel laureates have lived and worked here. Tübingen furthermore hosts numerous federal research institutions of the Max Planck Society, Helmholtz Association and Leibniz Association, which together with the University create a “joint research campus”.

The University is closely interlinked with the picturesque medieval town of Tübingen, located at the geographical center of Baden-Württemberg and thus at the heart of Europe. Rich in culture and history, alive with a broad range of entertainment and sports activities all in easy access of the campus, Tübingen is the perfect setting for a unique international experience.
