With 25,000 students among its 85,000 inhabitants, Tübingen combines the vitality of a young and cosmopolitan student community with the charm of a lovingly restored medieval town of half-timbered houses, narrow alleyways, and steep gabled roofs. Nestled in the Schwabian Alb, Tübingen is surrounded by rolling countryside with hiking and cycling paths to enjoy, castles to explore, and easy train connections to both major cities and quaint villages. Oregon students are supported by the experienced full-time Resident Director in the Oregon Study Center in Tübingen.

There are two types of courses Oregon students can take while in Germany: DaF (German as a Second Language) courses and regular university courses. Students with one or two years of college-level German can take a variety of classes in the “German as a Second Language” (DaF = Deutsch als Fremdsprache) section of each university. These courses will typically translate as German language credits in Oregon. Students with more advanced language proficiency can enroll in regular university classes in the humanities, natural and social sciences, education, business, communications, engineering, computer science, architecture, music, art and more. In some cases, classes are taught in English.
