I A - Office of Student Affairs



Welcome to TU Berlin’s Office of Student Affairs


We are happy to assist with all questions about applying, admissions, enrollment, and student administration services.

On the page Current Information, we regularly publish important updates about services and other relevant topics.

We know that the extensive information available, can make it hard to determine whom you have to contact with your questions.

The Academic Advising Service has created a video offering a short overview of the different advising services at TU Berlin.

Questions about applying, admissions, and enrollment?

If you have a German university entrance qualification and are interested in applying to a bachelor’s program, detailed information is available from Undergraduate Admissions (Team Bachelor National).

If you earned your university entrance qualification abroad and are interested in a bachelor’s program, precourse, or the Preparatory School at TU Berlin, you can find relevant information on the webpages for Undergraduate Admissions (Team Bachelor International) and the Preparatory School. Applications, including those for the Preparatory School, MUST be submitted to Undergraduate Admissions (Team Bachelor International).

Students with a first university degree interested in enrolling in a master’s program or doctoral studies can find detailed information about applying and enrollment on the webpages for Graduate Admissions.

Be sure to take a look at our enrollment checklist! It contains useful information about which documents are required and how to submit them.

Dear Students,

The federal government has announced a 9-euro public transportation ticket as part of its second energy relief package. The legal foundations for this have now been agreed by the Bundestag and Bundesrat. The ticket costs 9 euros per calendar month and is available from 1 June through 31 August 2022. It is also available to students. As such, your Semesterticket will function as the 9-euro ticket during the months of validity, and you will retain and continue to use your student ID. From June through August, you can use the ticket to travel throughout Germany on public and regional transportation. Any take-along regulations continue to be limited to the contractually defined area of validity of the Semesterticket.

As yet we are unable to say how students will be reimbursed for the remainder of the original Semesterticket fee. We must first receive the reimbursement from the Berlin transit authorities, which we expect in October.

All students enrolled from 1 June to 31 August 2022 who paid the Semesterticket fee are entitled to reimbursement.
You remain entitled if you are no longer enrolled at the time of reimbursement.
We will update you as soon as we can provide further information. Thank you for your understanding.
