TU Ilmenau International School comprises the International Office and the LEONARDO work placement office Thuringia. This results in excellent partnerships as well as help and advice for the preparation and organisation of study and internship periods abroad. The partnership network as well as student initiatives are led by the International Office.

The integration of the Language Institute creates synergies for internationalisation. The offer of language courses has been modified and adapted to requirements and resources. Various certificates useful for the students’ future career are offered.

Furthermore, TU IIS develops new study programmes and offers them to international students. This mainly includes the development and implementation of double degrees with partner institutions for master and bachelor programmes.

Guidance and support for interested students and applicants is offered in German and English.

Scientists and staff members responsible for target areas try to attract undergraduates in Asia, South America, the Balkan states, the Arabian world, Russia and the CIS to start their studies at TU Ilmenau. Several staff members represent TU Ilmenau in selected regions and countries of the world promoting Ilmenau’s attractiveness for studies.
