Tübingen - Virtual Intercultural Pre-Package

(Tü-VIPP), October 5 - December 18, 2020

International Students are our true VIPs! Come and sign up for TÜ-VIPP and join us online from October to December!

We are experiencing a challenging time. However, we wish to stay in touch with you despite the pandemic and despite the fact that a lot of you cannot travel or attend Tübingen University in the fall/winter semester. Therefore, we have developed a virtual program for you called TÜ-VIPP consisting of a variety of very interesting, intercultural and interactive courses. The application deadline for the program is the 30th August and we hope that you apply and that you take one, two, or more courses from our virtual pre-package which promotes intercultural exchange. This will be a fantastic preparation for you and your possible “real” stay in presence at Tübingen University in 2021. We are looking forward to meeting you this fall!

Dr. Christine Rubas, Head of the International Office at Tübingen University
