Advisory Course “How to study at the University of Tübingen”

Just arrived in Tübingen?

You have just arrived in Tübingen to study here? Everything is quite new and a bit strange? Then join us at the “Beratungskurs” for international students. During the 4-day advisory programme, local students will answer all your questions to get started at the University and in Tübingen. Topics may be:


  • Studying at the University of Tübingen (lectures, courses, presentations, exams)
  • Tour of the campus (libraries, canteens, faculties)
  • Help with registration (health insurance, township registration, bank account)
  • Special advice on studying by advisers of the faculties
  • Individual advice on how to organise your timetable
  • Guided tour of Tübingen
  • Life in Tübingen: shopping, going out and partying, sports, phoning, going out for meals…
  • Last but not least you will meet many people, as you have the possibility of going out with your group every night in order to get to know Tübingen nightlife.
  • Plus: At our party on the last day of the programme all participants will celebrate the beginning of their time in Tübingen.
