The University of Tübingen
Innovative. Interdisciplinary. International. Since 1477. These have been the University of Tübingen’s guiding principles in research and teaching ever since it was founded. Its institutional strategy has been selected for funding in the Excellence Initiative sponsored by the German federal and state governments, making Tübingen one of eleven German universities distinguished with that title of excellence. In key rankings Tübingen is listed among Germany’s best universities. The University is embedded in a world-class research environment and closely cooperates with other institutions located in Tübingen, including Max Planck and Leibniz Institutes as well as Helmholtz Centers, in the framework of the Tübingen Research Campus (TRC).

Research at the Faculty of Medicine focuses on nationally and internationally competitive, interdisciplinary core research. These research focus areas include the neurosciences, oncology/immunology and infection research, complemented by the cross-sectional field of medical technology, including biomedical imaging, and the key areas of diabetes research and vascular medicine.

Tübingen’s high-powered academic excellence and superb research conditions are paired with small-town charm and extraordinary quality of life. Small steps, narrow alleys and pointed gables form the silhouette of old Tübingen all the way to its castle. This university town in southwest Germany with around 85,000 inhabitants and 28,500 students combines the flair of a lovingly renovated historical center dating back to the Middle Ages with the colorful bustle and vitality of a young and cosmopolitan student town.
