This programme is funded by the DAAD until the end of 2023.

Together with other international students, you will take part in the German Preparatory Courses offered by the Language Centre and prepare for the "TestDaF" (language test for learners of German as a foreign language). Additionally, you can also attend your first lectures in mathematics. You will be assigned a German student as a tandem partner and get to know TU Braunschweig and the German study system.
