Please send the e-mail to secretary.v3( at)wiwi.uni-tuebingen.de. We will complete your letter of recommendation. If you have to send the letter of recommendation yourself, you will be notified when it is ready to be picked up at the chair during office hours.


Credit accreditation from abroad

We ask for your understanding that our chair cannot offer individual counseling on your exchange year. The following guidelines should help you to prepare for credit accreditation at our chair. (Please compare also to the guidelines of the examination office).

We handle credit transfers only for courses in the field of “International Macroeconomics and Finance ”. Please note that courses pertaining to the field of “Banking and Finance” should be handed in for credit transfer at the department of Banking (Prof. Neus).
