Are you graduating from high school somewhere outside of Germany or have already earned your diploma abroad and would now like to pursue studies at RWTH Aachen University? Do you have questions about studying at RWTH? Or don't know who to contact?

RWTH’s International Office will gladly help you. Here you will find the right contacts, get all the essential information you need to apply for admission at RWTH, and later get off to a good start with your studies. The team can also refer you to other departments at the University if necessary.

RWTH Aachen University regularly provides an overview of German-language offers to help prospective students decide on a course of study. Since all our undergraduate programs (bachelor's degrees and state examinations) are currently offered only in German, there is no comparable newsletter with offers for English speakers. For information on degree programs offered in English, please contact the International Office.
