Welcome to IES! Our short-term programs in International & European Studies offer students from all over the world a chance to study Europe and the European Union from the unique vantage point of one of Germany’s few universities in the top “Excellent” class, situated in the heart of Europe. The programs are taught entirely in English and provide the possibility of obtaining course credit.
Located in Baden-Württemberg, a southern German region with strong European traditions, Tübingen is close to Strasbourg, France, seat of the European Parliament, and equally close to Frankfurt, seat of the European Central Bank. The Stuttgart airport nearby serves the most international destinations, putting Tübingen just a few hours away from cities in Europe like Paris, London or Prague.
