To make your start in Berlin as stress free as possible, we recommend you take care of a few necessary administrative issues as soon as possible.
You can do some things before traveling; others will have to wait until you are here in Berlin.
We recommend you read the information below thoroughly to find out more!
Everyone living in Germany is required to register at their local Citizen’s Registration Office or Bürgeramt within a specific period of time. As appointments are very hard to come by, we recommend that you act quickly and book an appointment before arriving in Berlin.
Exchange students who are not EU or EEA nationals and are planning to remain in Germany for more than 3 months are required to apply for a residence permit to study if they do not already have a visa covering the entire period of their stay.
In some cases, the estimated period for your exchange program or dual degree program is not sufficient for you to achieve your academic goals at TU Berlin. If you need more time, you can apply for an extension.
Exchange and dual degree students who study longer than one semester at TU Berlin have to re-register for each consecutive semester.
The enrollment team provides you with the re-registration information in due time so that you can manage to take care of it before the deadline.
