Our "Schnupperstudium" ("Get Your Toes Wet") program opens university courses for high school students. These are regular lecture courses usually frequented by enrolled students in their early semesters of studying computer science. By sitting in on these courses, high school students get a lively taste of the subject matters and questions in informatics and its "hyphenated" neighbouring disciplines (such as bio-informatics). It is not necessary to apply or register for the program's courses, which are held in German.
In computer science, the following courses are open:
In winter term:
- Informatik I
- Mathematik für Informatiker I
- Einführung in die Technische Informatik
In summer term:
- Informatik II
- Mathematik für Informatiker II
- Informatik der Systeme
- Einführung in Internettechnologien
- Einführung in die Bioinformatik

The "Tübinger Schnupperwoche für Schülerinnen und Schüler" ("Get Your Toes Wet Week for High School Students") takes place annually during fall break and addresses high school students of grades 11 through 13. The Schnupperwoche offers an opportunity to obtain in-depth information on studies in biochemistry, chemisty, computer science (incl. bioinformatics, media informatics, medical informatics), mathematics, physics, and other natural science disciplines. The event is organized by representatives of the participating departments and headed by the Dean of the Science Faculty of the University of Tübingen.
