Bridging course for refugees
Bridges4Refugees is a programme for refugees who want to begin or continue their studies at TU Braunschweig. The prerequisite for participation is a foreign university entrance qualification. For several months, participants attend intensive German classes and start to visit a few maths lectures. German tandem partners offer them help and support. After passing the DSH language proficiency test (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang), participants are eligible to study at TU Braunschweig or any other German university. Bridges4Refugees is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). TU Braunschweig’s Language Centre began offering the programme in 2016. Since then, more than 100 young women and men have made use of this opportunity to start or continue their studies.
