Trial study natural sciences (Schnupperstudium Naturwissenschaften)

Is it the same for you: Natural sciences are really exciting - but what does a course of study actually look like? Is it right for me? The taster study program at the University of Tübingen offers a small insight into the study of natural sciences. In selected events, mostly in the first year of study, you can experience the subject, lecturers and students "live".

The courses of the first year of study can be found in the corresponding section of the event directory "alma". For more information and the current program of the University of Tübingen, please visit the website of the General Study Counseling Service.


Study orientation test

In Baden-Württemberg, there is an obligation to provide proof of participation in a study orientation process with matriculation (enrollment) in an undergraduate degree program. Use the self-assessment to gain an insight into the degree programs at the University of Tübingen and find out which degree program suits you best:

  •     Is studying even the right thing for me?
  •     Which degree programs suit me?
  •     Do I meet the requirements of the fields of study?
  •     What do you study in the degree programs?

On the BW² – Beispielaufgaben aus dem Studium platform, you will find numerous assignments for some MNF degree programs (e.g., geography, computer science, mathematics, pharmacy, physics) in which you can earn a first university degree. For each degree program, there is an introductory page with basic information. Then you get to the sample assignments. The contents are selected to give an insight into the main topics and methods of the respective course of study. Feedback or further explanations are provided for solving the individual tasks.
