Tuebingen University

About the Program

This exchange program begins with an optional intensive language and culture course. Students may continue to take courses offered for international students and/or may enroll directly in host university courses, depending upon linguistic ability. Students have the opportunity to develop a program of study related to their academic needs. Fields of study include computer science, earth sciences, ecology, humanities, information technology, language study, math, natural and physical sciences, and social sciences. The University of Tuebingen was started by the Count of Wurttemberg in 1477 and has existed since, with the same rich history and culture driving students to succeed and enjoy their education.
