Our offers for you

Experience cultures

The TU Braunschweig offers its students many opportunities to gain experience abroad. More than 300 partner universities are available if you want to study abroad, write a term paper or acquire an additional degree. Internships abroad are also an ideal way to combine professional practice and experience abroad.

To get an overview of the many possibilities of a time abroad, it is best to come to our information events or use our (online) consulting services.

You can also acquire intercultural skills on your home campus: At the TU Braunschweig there are a number of initiatives and projects that make interculturality a tangible experience. Whether it is a tandem program, support for international students or intercultural workshops - you can even have your intercultural commitment and knowledge confirmed in a certificate.

Discover language(s)

Welcome to the world of languages! At the Language Centre of the International House you can choose between 12 different foreign languages and get fit for your studies, the professional world or everyday life abroad. We offer specialist and general language courses, but also intercultural workshops, cinema, language certificates or individual writing advice.

The language center also offers a wide range of German courses for international students at all levels. Semester courses, compact courses, workshops or language counseling help you to successfully complete your studies in German.

The virtual learning platform Moodle is available for all courses. If you are registered for a language course, you will find learning materials, additional literature, podcasts and videos, as well as information on events and activities.
