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.
