Overall Experience
It was absolutely worthwhile, since being abroad helped me appreciate aspects of life at home that I had been taking for granted. Being able to travel also gave me the confidence to navigate a foreign country by myself. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I learned what it was like to live in another country. And that even one as similar to my own as Germany can be stressful to acclamate to. It was definitely worth it. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Made so many friends and learned so much. I speak German a lot more easily now. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I gained confidence, but also humility. I became much more independent and learned to savor alone time. I am more serious about my education and my career plans, and I have language skills that I hope to use in my career as well. It was absolutely worth it, especially since I went for the whole year. - Tufts University View Entire Review

Extremely worth while. - Tufts University View Entire Review
My German improved immensely and at the end I felt like I belonged there. I gained a stronger desire to keep working on my German skills, since I totally fell in love with the culture. I plan on teaching English in a German-speaking country after graduation. - Tufts University View Entire Review
It was definitely worth while. I learned a lot and brought some things back with me. That said, I think there are better programs out there. - Tufts University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was great. I didn't realize it as much at the time, but in retrospect, it was amazing. I loved Germany and it is truly a once in a lifetime experience to be able to live in another country. - Tufts University View Entire Review

I met so many people from so many different places that I'd never known anything about before. My German speaking skills increased hugely. I learned a lot about politics in Germany, and it was very interesting to see another way of doing things in government. Being able to drink legally was awesome, and the culture around alc... - Tufts University View Entire Review

About

The Tufts-in-Tübingen program, which enrolls twenty students, is completely integrated into the German university system. Program participants study at the Eberhard Karls University, founded in 1477 and one of Europe’s best academic and research-oriented universities. A number of famous scholars have studied, conducted research, and taught at the university, among them seven Nobel laureates. National and international rankings consistently underline the high quality of the university’s research and teaching. A large selection of courses is offered, with more than 280 majors and minors represented at the undergraduate and doctoral levels. Tufts-in-Tübingen students have enrolled in courses across the university, from archaeology to zoology.

The university and the city of Tübingen are closely intertwined. The city has about 90,000 inhabitants, including some 28,000 students from Germany and abroad. Tübingen is centrally located within Europe and is long recognized for its international feel. Rich in culture and history, the city combines the flair of a picturesque medieval town with the atmosphere of a lively cosmopolitan university town. With a range of cultural and sports activities within easy access of the campus, Tübingen is certainly an ideal university setting.
