It is great university for those who care more about academic achievements rather than social engagement. This is tipical university town, so there is not so much to do unless you are prepared to travel to Stuttgart (around 40km). But the atmosphere for studying is great.

“Modern education in the midst of centuries-old history”
Portugal, Undergraduate Literature
Being a student at the University of Tübingen differs from the experiences at most other universities: The entire town is basically the university. In Tübingen, which contains approximately 90,000 inhabitants, around 30% of people are students. That means that the student life is as well present everywhere in the town. There I study my Bachelor's in International Literatures as my main subject. I also study Rhetoric as my subsidiary subject. It is an ideal place to study, where one can encounter plenty of attractive student life combined with high-quality education provided by the university. This is also reflected in the fact that the University of Tübingen is among the elite universities in Germany. The demands in my seminars are seen in the methodically constructed seminar papers, that we students at the faculty of humanities elaborate for each of our seminar's with scientific preparation. The lessons consist of seminars as well of lectures. Even two practical seminars I have paricipated in for my subsidiary subject. Taking seminars also from foreign lecturers has improved my knowledge of these languages and provided me with a wider understanding for other cultures. It is very well seen, how connected the university is around the globe. It has partnerships with universities in every part of the world. Since the university was founded in 1477, it has a long tradition of many known persons, who contributed to the university's history: Johannes Kepler, Eduard Mörike, Alois Alzheimer, Ernst Bloch and even the former pope Bendikt XVI. (Joseph Ratzinger) are examples.
I do my studies in a humanitarian field of studies on purpose, because it is a worthwhile method to educate one's own mind and understand human perceptions of the reality portrayed in culture, literature and language. I have had many teachers, who shared a critical perspective on percaptions in literature and communication. In order for students to receive a critical perspective and anlyze scientific questions on their own, each seminar concentrates on a specific selection of the world's literatures.
