Moving to a university in another country can be both an exciting and a challenging experience. To help you settle in quickly and make the most of your time in Braunschweig, we offer you a broad range of support programmes for international students.
At the beginning of the semester, we organise an orientation programme for international students new to Braunschweig. The programme includes information sessions, social events and excursions and is a great opportunity to get to know the university and make new friends.
Getting a buddy is the best way to make your start in Braunschweig easy and enjoyable. Buddies are senior students who know TU Braunschweig well and volunteered to support new international students. They will assist you upon you arrival and help you settle into your new surroundings and life in Braunschweig and in Germany.
If you feel you would like some additional support in your studies, we offer a range of different support programmes that can help you improve your German language skills, organise your studies more efficiently, understand the German university system and get to know the Germans better. Your tutors in the programmes are mostly senior students who will be able to answer all the questions you might have about your studies, the university and life in Germany.
Once you have settled in, we offer a semester programme with weekly meetings, cultural and sporting activities, international parties, excursions and short trips. Most of the programme is organised by students for students. Getting involved is one of the best ways to meet people from all over the world!
