Braunschweig also known as Brunswick, Braunschweig has about 250,000 people, the largest city between Hannover and Berlin. This place is more about history and people with old thinking, many of Braunschweig's most historic buildings surround the city center Burgplatz (Castle Square), including the 12th-century Braunschweiger Dom (Brunswick Cathedral), burial place of the famed Henry the Lion, powerful early Duke of Saxony. Henry's rebuilt castle, Burg Dankwarderode, is also on the Burgplatz and is now a museum. The Old City Market is another popular visitor spot which does include few happening places such as bars and game parlors. This place is more of a tourist spot than a good residential area as you cannot consider this as a peaceful place; it is always full of tourist crowd.


Infrastructure of the university is beautiful; it is more like a tourist spot than a university. The university’s main building is almost 250 year old and gives one a feel of an Assassin Creed’s character. The campus is right in the center of the city and has a good collaboration of history and modern technology. The campus has 3 canteens with great German food, you might take time to adapt to it but once you do its difficult to get out of its habit.

Residing Options

Rental prices, just like the cost of living, are on an average level in Braunschweig. Your own little apartment will cost you between EUR 350 and EUR 400, everything included. A room in a shared apartment costs between EUR 200 and EUR 300. On the other hand, living in a hall of residence during the first semester will make it very easy to meet other students.


If you are looking for the top-notch faculty in Germany then you are at the right place. Technologically advanced with great teaching skills, professor at TU Braunschweig is pretty awesome. This place has one of the best faculties in Germany and they are supportive in terms of every doubt you present them with. The faculty prefers a syllabus and a structure which one must follow to catch-up on the courses, let me tell you that the syllabus is quite difficult.

Jobs and placements

The university definitely provides boost to student’s career even though the name is just enough for it. The university has good contacts and provides references to companies if they find a student who is outstanding. Most of the placements happen in MNCs which are based on IT Module, else few students change their career and move to a different field altogether.
