Fill out the registation form for Preparatory German Courses completely, print it out and sign it (signature as in passport). Submit the registration form with your passport copy. The signature must be visible in the passport.
If you want to enroll in a course higher than A1 level, please send us a graded language certificate of the previous level.
If someone is to make registrations and changes for you, please fill out the power of attorney and also send us a passport copy of the authorized person(s).
3. Optional: Submit the request form for application confirmation
Only necessary if you want to apply for a study applicant visa.
Do you want to apply for a study applicant visa? Then a check of your documents may be useful. If the document check is successful, you will receive an application confirmation (Bewerbungsbestätigung). The confirmation of application states that you are qualified to take up studies at the TU Braunschweig or in Germany following the German course.
The application confirmation is not a conditional admission!
For the issuance of the application confirmation there are additional costs of 75.00 Euro, which have to be transferred together with the course fee.
Please fill out the application for an application confirmation and sign the application. Submit this with your resume and appropriate school transcripts.
If you have already completed a course of study or university entrance examination, please also send us the supporting documents and certificates with a summary of grades.
School certificates (e.g.: International Baccalauréat)
Proof of having passed a university entrance examination
University transcript of records, which includes all subjects taken with grade
Please understand that it takes some time to check your documents. If you already have an embassy appointment, please contact us directly and let us know so that we can try to issue the documents in time.
