International Summer Courses

German lessons in a different way

Together with students from all over the world, you can learn German, make many new contacts and experience German history, business and culture on excursions.

Coronavirus: We regret that the international summer courses cannot take place this year

As we cannot estimate how the global corona pandemic will develop in the coming months, the TU Braunschweig has decided to cancel the international summer courses this year. We ask for your understanding and are available for further questions at any time.

"I learned German for a very long time, but it was only in Braunschweig that I broke through the language barrier. I've never learned as much as here".

(Scholarship holder in 2013, final report)

For more than 35 years, the International Summer Courses at TU Braunschweig have been an integral part of the Language Centre's programme.

They started in 1982 with a handful of students from the USA. In the following years students from all over Europe took part in the course and since the beginning of the 1990s we welcome students from all over the world every year.
