At the beginning of the semester, we organise an orientation programme for international students new to Braunschweig. The programme is an excellent opportunity to get to know the university and make new friends! It is offered by various international student societies and university groups and includes information sessions, tutorials, excursions, guided tours, a city rally and an international welcome party.
