For Hosts

The Welcome Centre is the main consulting and service point for all international researchers, doctoral students, postdocs, newly appointed professors and host institutes of BTU.

We see ourselves as an interface between the different university and non-university institutions and offer individual support, which begins before arrival, to all of BTU’s international researchers.

We would like to relieve you as host institution from all administrative tasks. Additionally, the Welcome Centre supports our international researchers with a wide range of services. Our goal is to create the best possible starting conditions for our researchers and their family members who are travelling with them. During their entire stay, from arrival to farewell, we strive to support our international researchers.

If you would like to invite an international guest researcher, postdoc or doctoral student to BTU, you can inform the Welcome Centre in advance about your project. We offer advice and provide support in many different areas including:

  • Visa, residence permit
  • Accomodation search
  • Formal questions (such as insurances, taxes, etc.)
  • Childcare and schools
  • Social integration through special events

It would be great if you could inform the international researcher about registering for the Welcome Centre as early as possible (Online registration) so that we can guarantee optimal support from the start.

As the host institution, it is also possible to register the researcher at the Welcome Centre yourself. In this case, after they are registered, we will get into contact with them.

We look forward to working with you!
