Application for guest students

For the winter semester 2020/21, 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 2020/21.The measure is intended to protect the health of both the guest students and the university lecturers organising the courses. In addition, it is currently not possible to estimate when presence courses with a larger audience will be possible again.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.

You can apply to attend lectures as a guest student up until the start of the lecture period. The cutoff date for the summer semester is 15 April and for the winter semester it is 15 October. Submit TWO COPIES of the application form below.

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

If you wish to attend lectures only, fill out the application form and send two copies directly to Student Administration/ Studentensekretariat.

If you wish to attend seminars, practicals or exercises, you need approval from the relevant faculty. In that case, send your application forms directly to the relevant faculty.
