We offer a unique virtual course program to our international students abroad and to all Tübingen students inspired by intercultural exchange. The name TÜ-VIPP demonstrates that we consider all our students to be our true VIPs who aim to develop essential skills needed to tackle a challenging future. TÜ-VIPP courses prepare you perfectly for a later stay abroad, possibly at Tübingen University. So come and join a course on German language & culture, Kiswahili, intercultural topics or a virtual buddy program. You can choose up to two courses plus the buddy program.

Important news for future exchange students: Please note that you will be able to transfer all ECTS/credits gained in any TÜ-VIPP course to your exchange semester at Tübingen University in 2023 if you complete a final task once here.

For our Tübingen students: TÜ-VIPP is an excellent opportunity to meet international students from around the world (possibly from a partner university where you want to spend your year abroad) and to increase your intercultural competence by engaging in meaningful intercultural team work and cooperation! Students of the University of Tübingen can acquire CPs by attending these courses. Bachelor students of the University of Tübingen can have these CPs credited as part of the module Key Qualifications. Furthermore, there is the option for students of the University of Tübingen (bachelor and master level) to get these CPs credited as part of the certificate Global Awareness (see https://uni-tuebingen.de/de/204780).
Participating in TÜ-VIPP was an amazing experience. I learned a lot, met great teachers from one of the most prestigious universities in the world, and made many friends. Many times, even though it was online, I felt like I really was in Tübingen! Thank you very much, University of Tübingen, for everything, I really loved the program.
