UVA Exchange
Technical University Berlin

 

With almost 31 000 students, circa 100 course offerings and 40 Institutes, the historic Technische Universität Berlin is one of Germany’s largest and most internationally renowned technical universities. Located in Germany’s capital city – at the heart of Europe – outstanding achievements in research and teaching, imparting skills to excellent graduates, and a modern service-oriented administration characterize TU Berlin.

The International Office and TU Berlin offers a diverse number of social and cultural activities which are a great opportunity to meet your fellow students outside the lecture halls and might also make your leisure time more exciting. Check the activities homepage for social and cultural opportunities available.

Location IconLocation

Students in Berlin are exposed to a vibrant and cosmopolitan environment, which offers a unique depiction of recent history, as the metropolis is still in the midst of reinventing itself after the long divide between East and West. The city holds keys to understanding Germany and the Germans, but also provides broader clues to understanding Europe, its long and difficult quest for common ground, and the persistent difficulties on its way. Additionally, students enjoy, overall, a lower cost of living than most other larger European cities. Berlin's location in central Europe makes the city a major hub for getting to other German cities, as well as other European countries. The well-organized public transportation system makes traveling around the city, and to neighboring suburbs, easy and affordable.
