The University of Tübingen is a research university of international standing. As a full university, it is characterised by its diversity of subjects and the resulting opportunities for interdisciplinary cooperation in research and teaching. While maintaining its diversity of subjects, the university nevertheless positions itself clearly by setting priorities in those areas in which excellent achievements in research and teaching are achieved and where sustainable development opportunities arise.
