Becoming a host family is a particularly exciting form of intercultural exchange. By spending the summer together with an international guest, your family will learn about a new culture. At the same time, you contribute to making the time in Germany a very special one for your guest. Often, deep friendships develop from this time.
Our international students come to Braunschweig from all over the world to improve their professional or language skills in our summer schools and to get to know Braunschweig, the region and Germany. This works particularly well if they are accommodated with host families or in shared flats during their stay in Germany, where they can practise their German in everyday life and get used to life in Germany.
For many international students, the summer schools also serve as preparation for studying at TU Braunschweig: they already get to know the city, the university and fellow students. When they return to Braunschweig at a later point in their studies, this knowledge makes it easier for them to start their studies abroad.
