About us

[Translate to English:] Banner für Wir über uns

We bring the internationality to life.

The International House & Research Services of TU Braunschweig are 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,
  • the implementation and continuous development of processes and services in national and international research, teaching and mobility..

Our goals are to anchor internationality in all areas of the University and to foster the internationalisation of the region.
