Praxisportal FAQ

For students

What is the Praxisportal and how does it differ from other job portals?

The aim of the Praxisportal is to give students at the University of Tübingen better access to internships and entry positions. This portal is aimed exclusively at students, graduates and employees of the University of Tübingen. Therefore it is necessary to log in with your university login data. Within the portal, internships and theses as well as positions for graduates and doctoral candidates can be found. Students also have the opportunity to receive information about the latest vacancies by e-mail.

What are the benefits of logging in?

On the one hand, you will find good contacts of many years' standing from various institutions of the University of Tübingen in the Praxisportal. In addition, the portal contains current offers and jobs from companies and institutions, with a focus on partners from the region who want to address students of the University of Tübingen in particular. Because you, as a student, initially specify your subjects, organisations have the opportunity to advertise certain positions for a subject-specific group of people.

How is the Praxisportal funded?

The Praxisportal is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the project "Erfolgreich Studieren in Tübingen" (ESIT).
