Interviews
After the admission committee has reviewed the applications they will invite the best candidates to take part in the next stage of the admission process, the interviews. Invitations will be sent out via email at least three days before the interview and will state the day and the time of the interview. Please make sure that you regularly check your emails. Applicants may request to conduct the interview via Skype at the time assigned to them. Admitted candidates will receive an admission letter 1-3 weeks after the interview. Students who receive an offer have only a limited period of time to accept the offer and matriculate at the University of Tübingen before the offer becomes invalid and the spot will be offered to the next candidate on the list.

The state of Baden-Württemberg has introduced fees for international non-EU students and second-degree students in recent years. For background information and for fee exemption options, please refer to the following link:
