The International House of TU Braunschweig is the central contact point for all international activities and issues at the university. As an institution, we report directly to the President. Our responsibilities include
the development of the university's international strategy, together with the Internationalisation Council and the Presidential Board,
the design and implementation of strategic internationalisation projects with our partners inside and outside the University,

Our goals are to anchor internationality in all areas of the University and to foster the internationalisation of the region.
Head of the International House Heinrich Schwabecher
The Mobility Office advises and supports TU Braunschweig students and staff in planning and implementing stays abroad in Europe and overseas. Our tasks also include the application and selection process for these mobilities. In addition, we are responsible for the application and admission process of international exchange students and advise and support this group on site in Braunschweig. Another topic of our team is the strategic development and expansion of international university cooperations and partnerships.
The Counselling and Admissions team in the Incoming Office is responsible for international Bachelor's and Master's students who are completing a full degree programme at TU Braunschweig. We advise on topics such as aliens law/residence titles, student financing or social concerns. In addition, we help prospective international students with questions about the application process and university admission and carry out the application and admission process for this group.
The Language Centre is our competence centre for university-related foreign language acquisition. It contributes to the internationalisation of all members of TU Braunschweig with its language learning offers and intercultural measures. With its courses and projects in the area of German as a foreign language, which prepare students for and accompany their studies, it makes an important contribution to ensuring the success of their studies and the integration of international students, academics and staff.
The team's task is to set up and carry out projects and offers that are of particular importance for TU Braunschweig within the framework of its internationalisation strategy and that increase the attractiveness of TU Braunschweig as an international university. The team is currently responsible for the implementation of the following strategic internationalisation projects:
International Summer Schools
International Student Support
Its tasks also include identifying new needs and developments in the field of internationalisation and actively supporting the further development of the International House's existing offers. Furthermore, the team is responsible for the internal and external communication of the strategic internationalisation projects and the offers of the International House.
The language courses at the International House are funded by the Bildungswerk ver.di in Niedersachsen e.V.. The Bildungswerk ver.di is one of the recognised providers of adult education in Lower Saxony. The grants help to maintain the attractive programme of the Language Centre.
