Studying without Language Barriers (S.O.S.)

In order to sustainably improve the learning success and integration of international students at TU Braunschweig, they receive support through the S.o.S. programme ("Studying without Language Barriers") in the form of student language coaches.

In the S.o.S. programme, international students study together with German speaking students in small learning groups and can practise their subject-specific and their general German language skills. The German speaking students support their international fellow students in understanding the course content and help them with language questions.
