Be prepared to study like you never have before if your German is not up to par before you arrive. Also the matriculation process is terribly complicated, be sure to have someone who has done it before help you.

Personal recommendation
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.

The most important thing is to speak at least a little bit German. Although university staff is very friendly and speaks English, outside of the university only German is spoken. Although there is not much sightseeing in Tuebingen it is quite conveniently situated not far from other cities. Also it is not very far from Switzerland and many students go there for a weekend. If there is a chance it is better to rent a room/flat individually since dorms are quite noisy. In case there are no rooms in Tuebingen itself, other towns like nuertingen are worth to have a look. The train fares are quite expensive but comfortable and fast.

buy a bahncard 50, with the student discount it's only about 100 euro, you will save 50% on all regular priced train fares. it was well worth it.

I worked on my PhD at this University and I am sure it was the most appropriate place for studying, collecting material and writing. The university spirit which dominates in Tuebingen constantly inspires your work .

Not to chew bubblegum (even just having the tiniest amount in your mouth and not even chewing wildly) when meeting with a professor, even if he had studied in America and was somewhat Americanized.

They are actively trying to cater to international students, and have implemented Bachelor degree programs. If you get accepted as a Vollstudent, they are keen on your success.

Have thick skin and be overwhelmingly sure you want to tackle such an endeavor: lots of bureaucracy involved. Adapt and be flexible!
