Internationalization at the University of Tübingen follows two closely linked principles.


  • Firstly, we are an international research university and stand for first-class, responsible research.
  • Secondly, the University of Tübingen has pledged to provide internationally-oriented, research-led education to all its students.


We have part of a global responsibility; this is reflected in our institutional strategy, Research – Relevance – Responsibility.
