  3. Apply for your visa.
  4. Find out about the necessary insurance policies you need to take out in Germany.
  5. Look for an apartment in Braunschweig or apply for a room in a hall of residence.

Buddy Programme

To get you off to a good start in Braunschweig, we can find a Buddy for you. Buddies are senior students who have been studying at the TU Braunschweig for some time and know the university and the city well.

  • Your Buddy picks you up from the main train station and takes you to your accommodation,
  • assists you with formalities such as enrolment, opening a bank account or visiting the Foreigners' Registration Office,
  • shows you around the university and the city.
