Guest Auditors and Visiting Students

As a guest auditor or visiting student, you have the opportunity to attend courses at TU Berlin without having to enroll. As a visiting student, you will be already enrolled at another German university. Before attending courses, you must gain permission from the lecturer as well as the faculty. You may not attend if doing so would deny regular students the chance to participate.

Preparatory School

Prospective students with a non-German university entrance qualification not equivalent to a German Abitur do not directly qualify to study at a university in Germany. Such students are required to take an assessment test at a preparatory school before they can begin their degree program. The Preparatory School also offers a Propädeutikum or precourse. This provides technical German classes for students whose non-German qualifications entitle them to study directly at a university in Germany. Just as for a degree program, you must apply to attend the Preparatory School.
