Application for guest students

For the winter semester 2021/2022, the application for the guest student program is only possible for online courses.

The University of Tübingen suspends the application for the guest student program for presence courses in the winter semester 2021/2022. Due to the still existing Corona pandemic and the resulting lack of room capacity for presence courses, guest students can only apply for online courses. For each lecture, please ask the respective university teacher which access you can use to attend the lecture online. The access will then be set up for you by the university lecturer, the respective institute or the Zentrum für Datenverarbeitung.


People with an appropriate level of education may apply to sit in on classes at the University if there is free capacity. You do not necessarily need to have completed high school, but be aware that the vast majority of classes at the University of Tubingen take place in German.

The application for the guest auditor permit can be submitted by post or as a scan by e-mail (studierendensekretariat@zv.uni-tuebingen.de). The application deadline for the summer semester is no later than April 15 (date of receipt by post) and for the winter semester no later than October 15 (date of receipt by post). 

The fee for guest students is currently € 50 per semester.

If you only want to attend lectures, we will process your application directly. If you want to attend seminars, practical courses oder exercises, the approval of the faculty concerned is required in each case. In any case, please send the guest auditor application (see below) to the student secretary.
