The Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, founded in 1477, is one of Europe’s oldest universities. Hundreds of years of science, research and teaching have left their mark on the town’s atmosphere. Our faculty, in contrast, is relatively young: the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Social Sciences have been merged in 2010. Nevertheless, especially in terms of internationality we stand in the forefront. We are seizing the opportunity to learn from each other and to further our international development.


Our 60 professors feature a broad international experience: stays abroad, participation in international conferences, publications in renowned international journals and projects with international scholars, among others. And our students, international as well as local, benefit from this experience. A lot of programs and courses have an international focus and every semester we offer more in English.  


We invite you to learn more about our international work on the following pages. Moreover, international students and scholars coming to Tübingen as well as students who want to go abroad will find helpful information.
