Frequently asked questions

It is possible to apply for a scholarship from PEESE?

I don't have any German knowledge. Can I apply for PEESE anyway?

Yes, you can. To be admitted, you need only to have English knowledge which fulfills our admission requirements. A German language course (you have to pay separately for that) will be offered in the first semester. By the beginning of the second semester you must prove that you have sufficient knowledge of the German language. For more informations about the application requirements please read the overview and the application.

How many exchange programmes are supported by the Technical University of Berlin?

TU Berlin actively supports a number of student exchange programmes. Each year, more than 550 university students take part in any of 230 exchange programmes with partner universities in Europe and other areas of the globe. Financial support for the programmes comes from a number of organisations, such as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the EU Commission (Sokrates/Erasmus), the Fulbright Commission, the German-French university programme or TU Berlin's direct exchange programmes.

Where can I get help or supports?

The International Office are the partners for international students who come to study at the TU Berlin. Whether it's a matter of a residency permit, a place to rent or making contacts between German and international students the International Office can help.

When will I receive an answer regarding my application for PEESE?

It's hard to tell how long it will take to send you an answer. Because usually,  uni-assist checks if your documents are complete and will then forward the paperwork to the TU Berlin (Technical University Berlin). Here all your documents and certificates will be examined after which a reply is sent back via international mail. The whole process may take some time according to the country you're from. So make sure you apply as early as possible.

How can I apply for visa?

  • Please note in case you have already applied for PEESE via uni-assist on-line portal and are waiting for an answer from TU Berlin: You have got (or will get) a letter from uni-assist confirming that all the necessary documents have been received and are being forwarded to TU Berlin for the examination of your application. Normally, with this letter you can go to your embassy and may apply for a visa. That way you may not have a definite answer that you're accepted, but you save time for your visa application with the German embassy (since that process will take some time).
  • Visa precedures depend on the country you come from and are quite diverse so we can not give particular hints for visa-application.
    Please contact your local embassy!

Are there any accommodations?

"Studentenwerk" and "Studentendorf Schlachtensee" are offering single appartments and flat-sharing communities. Partner programmes plan to accomodate their students there, so you will live close to other international students. Schlachtensee gives you the possibility to find fast and unbureaucratic a flat. You can decide to stay there or you can leave unproblematic when you found another appartement.
