About the Department

The Department of Mathematics at the Technical University of Darmstadt is one of the best mathematics departments in Germany with its wide range of subjects, a unique supervision concept and its international orientation. Seven research groups in Optimization, Stochastics, Logic, Algebra, Analysis, Numerics, Geometry and various graduate programs offer a wide range of courses.

Although some courses for exchange students are also offered in English, most courses are taught in German, so we recommend a good knowledge of German.

We welcome students from abroad who would like to study at our department for one or two semesters.

The international master's programme Mathematics can be studied fully in English.

On the website of the Department of International Affairs you will find relevant information on topics such as visa, housing, administrative procedures, etc. Information on the beginning and end of courses can be found under Dates and Deadlines and in the TU Darmstadt Semester Calendar.

Living in Darmstadt

Finding accommodation in Darmstadt and the surrounding area can prove difficult, as demand is usually higher than supply. However, below you will find helpful tips to make your apartment search easier:

  • The Studierendenwerk Darmstadt can arrange accommodation for you in one of the numerous halls of residence, but the number of apartments is limited so that you have to register on a waiting list.
  • The Darmstädter Echo is the local newspaper of the city; especially in the Saturday edition you can find numerous housing offers online and in the print edition.
  • Most students probably find accommodation through the website WG-Gesucht.

If you need help, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Buddy Programme for International Students

For new international students we offer the participation in the department's Buddy programme. This programme was established to help international students in exchange programmes or in the Master of Science Mathematics to get started at our department and at the TU Darmstadt.

All students from abroad are cordially invited to register for the buddy programme and thus make first contacts with Darmstadt before they start their studies in Germany. Each so-called mentee is assigned an experienced student of our department as a buddy.
