After matriculation

Searching for information in the Study Service Center
  • First of all, acquaint yourself with all the relevant term dates.
  • Are you planning to apply for BAföG? German students can apply for BAföG to fund their studies. For information and contacts, please visit the Student Support Services website.
  • Still looking for accommodation? Take a look at the numerous notices around campus, for example at the Old Building, the Mensa or the General Students’ Committee (AStA). For more information on the halls of residence, please contact the Student Support Services. For useful information and links, you can also check out the tips for finding housing.
  • Remember to register your new place of residence. You are required to do so with the City of Braunschweig’s Bürgerbüro [in German], an administrative office for citizens, within two weeks of your move.
  • For some degree programmes, you will need to complete preliminary courses or internships before the start of your studies. Find out when these preliminary courses [in German] take place and how to register.
  • It is compulsory to attend language courses for some courses. The Language Centre offers courses in many foreign languages and in German as a foreign language. 
    Please note: Some courses require you to take a placement test before you can enrol in the language course. You should therefore inform yourself in good time about the registration procedure and the dates at the Language Centre. As a rule, registration for language courses is possible two weeks before the start of lectures.

  • The D1RECTIONS project supports students in the initial study phase in arriving at the university, giving direction to their studies and planning necessary steps. Two different measures are offered for this purpose: group-based coaching over 7 sessions and a digital onboarding tool that can be used from any device, regardless of location. The offer is primarily aimed at bachelor students in the 1st-3rd semester.

The tour flight

The tour flight over the Universitätsplatz and through the Altgebäude gives you the opportunity to get to know the TU Braunschweig from an unusual perspective. Whether lecture halls, the senate hall or the architecture pavilion: the drone takes a few spectacular laps. The flight was recorded by the Institute of Operating Systems and Computer Networks with research assistant Sven Pullwitt as the pilot.
