This programme is funded by the DAAD until the end of 2022.

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.

You can enter the programme at any level from A1 to B2. If you have successfully completed the TestDaF at the end of the programme, you can study at TU Braunschweig or any other German university. Depending on the university and the subject, you can start your studies in the winter or summer semester.
