A large part of them use the ERASMUS+ programme and the numerous cooperation partners in Europe and worldwide for this purpose. The ERASMUS programme of the European Union promotes study visits abroad by students between EU countries and partner countries. A stay abroad here lasts at least one to two semesters. There is also the possibility of financial support through the programme. Students are also exempted from paying tuition fees abroad.

About 2,000 international students study at TU Braunschweig. With the inTU program, we bring together international and local students at TU Braunschweig. The student tutorial programme teaches internationals about the german university system in weekly meetings – especially the structures and requirements of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The programme focuses on topics such as the organization of the study structure and everything about examinations. German culture and getting to know each other are also central topics at inTU.
In addition, there will be time during the meetings to address current issues. The goal of inTU is to make it easier for students to start at TU Braunschweig and thus significantly increase their chances of success. Valuable contacts can be made with german and international students. This additionally enriches the intercultural competence and language skills of german students.
