The University of Tübingen – Strong in Research

The University of Tübingen has shown itself to be an outstanding research institution both within Germany and in international comparisons. Key rankings in recent years have placed the University highly and singled out certain subject fields in Tübingen for their high quality – including the Humanities and Social Sciences, the Sciences and Life Sciences. Tübingen rose to one of the eleven German universities ranked “excellent” in the German government’s Excellence Initiative for the funding of outstanding research and teaching in higher education. Our institutional strategy was ranked excellent, as was one new   Graduate School and the Neuroscience Excellence Cluster CIN.


Our broad spectrum of subjects gives us a great variety of options for interdisciplinary collaboration. We also have close research ties with many other institutions of higher education and research institutions domestically and internationally, as well as with industry.
