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 and student culture coaches.

As native speakers, the language coaches help with the linguistic understanding of the course content and organise small learning groups in which they exchange ideas with the international students. The cultural coaches lead workshops and activities in the area of language and culture. With a language coach you can, for example, read lecture notes, practise exams, write laboratory reports or study for oral examinations. You can also attend extracurricular German tutorials in workshops.
