Language Policy

Guidelines for a university language policy

The project

The TU Braunschweig has developed a language policy that specifies guidelines for the use of German and other languages in research and development. The following primary objectives have been identified:

- to improve the linguistic preparation our students receive for an increasingly English-dominated work and research environment

- to increase our attractiveness to international partners in terms of language

- to increase the German language competence of international students and doctoral candidatesstudents

- to promote the linguistic diversity of Europe with its many highly-developed scientific languages

These measures should be seen as recommendations, not as binding implementation requirements.
