For the Faculty of Humanities the university branches in Asia – in Kyōto, Seoul und Peking – are of utmost importance. For our students, these branches provide the opportunity to spend time in Asia early on in their studies. This does not only strengthen their language skills, but also the understanding for culture and country.
Due to the strong networking between the Faculty of Humanities and the university branches students of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean studies can enjoy an authentic cultural and linguistic experience at first hand. Furthermore, those branches form crucial strongholds for the international cooperation between the University of Tübingen and the respective countries in the areas of research and teaching.
