Doshisha EU Campus European Studies Program

Study German and the EU at one of Germany's top universities: The University of Tübingen!

The Doshisha EU Campus European Studies Program is a tailor-made program offered by Doshisha University in cooperation with University of Tübingen's International & European Studies (IES) program.

The aim of the program is to provide Doshisha undergraduate students a short-time study abroad experience at the University of Tübingen and to complement and enrich their course of study with seminars focusing on Europe and the European Union. Courses will be taught by Doshisha University faculty and the University of Tübingen faculty. Students will be enrolled as exchange students at the University of Tübingen, one of Germany's few universities in the top "Excellent" class.

The program is primarily open to students from Doshisha University. Please contact the Office of International Affairs of Doshisha University if you are interested in participating in the program and for further information on the application process. A very good command of English is required.

Buddy Program

To support you during your stay in Tübingen and to promote an intercultural exchange we have set up a Buddy Program in which a student of the University of Tübingen teams up with an IES participant. The Buddy Program aims to initiate a cultural exchange between international students and the Tübingen students, to expand one’s own cultural horizon, as well as the strengthening of intercultural skills and competences. The Buddy Program will allow you to get to know German student life first-hand and to make friends. More here.
