TU Dresden (TUD) — public non-profit institution. It is located in Dresden, Germany. As an active member of European University Association (EUA), Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research (CESAER), TU9, TUD is participating in developing the academic environment.
TUD does research in different fields of study. You can find them on the official site.
As in many other universities in the country, the academic calendar at TUD is divided into two semesters. But for convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. Education at TUD is free for everyone. However, students must pay a semester fee — 258 USD per year. Check the university website for up-to-date information on prices and available scholarships.
Also, consider other expenses: accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals, and personal expenses.
Bachelor degree at TUD
You cannot enter a German university after the 11th grade, because schooling there lasts longer than 11 years. First, you need to eliminate the academic difference. To do this, foreign students go through a preparatory year in special educational institutions — Studienkollegs.
The city campus of TUD provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Dresden has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The school has a library where students can do their homework or just relax. TUD accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
What to do after graduation
It is possible to stay in Germany for an additional 18 months after graduation. To do this, you need to apply for a graduate visa, which allows you to work without providing an offer from an employer. Look for more immigration options in our article.
