Before Departing BTU

The Welcome Centre hopes that you and your family had a very enriching experience at BTU and found a second home in Cottbus/ Senftenberg.

In order to stay connected with current happenings at BTU, please let us know your new mailing address and if applicable, your new email address.

If you remember, at the beginning of your stay you received a Welcome Package from the Welcome Centre. Since your stay at BTU is about to end, we would like to give you a Goodbye Package as well.

In a checklist, we have summarised the most important issues that must be dealt with well in advance of your departure. Of course, we are also happy to advise and support you during your last weeks at BTU.

In order to better serve the individual needs of our international researchers in the future, we continually strive to improve our services. If you have any comments or suggestions to help us improve the Welcome Centre, please send us an e-mail (welcome-centre(at) 

The Welcome Centre looks forward to welcoming you in the future again  as a guest at BTU!
