What Eberhard Karls has to offer:

  • One of Germany's oldest and most elite universities; internationally noted in medicine, natural sciences and the humanities
  • Offers a buddy program for exchange students and trips and events for exchange students
  • 7 faculties; including the Schools of Humanities, Science, Economics and Social Science, Protestant Theology, Catholic Theology, Law, and Medicine
  • Has been home to a number of eminent students; including Horst Köhler (former President of Germany), former Pope Benedict XVI, Johannes Kepler, and Friedrich Hegel
  • Located in the heart of Tübingen, a beautiful medieval town long recognized for its international flair. Rich in culture and history, alive with a broad range of entertainment and sports activities all in easy access of the campus, Tübingen is certainly the perfect university setting!
  • Tübingen is located near the Black Forest and just two hours form the borders of France, Switzerland, and Lake Constance

Why don't you combine your participation in this exchange with participation in an internship as well? We could send you on an International Work Experience (IWE) internship before or after your exchange. If you are interested in going out on both programs send an email to goabroad@ualberta.ca asking for more details.

Students on the Tübingen program may be eligible to receive the Baden-Württemberg Scholarship. This award in the past was around 700 €/month. You must apply and be selected for the Tübingen exchange program in order to be eligible for this funding, and final selection of recipients will be made by Tübingen.
