TU Dresden is a highly ranked research university. Dresden, located in eastern Germany, has a history reaching back to the 13th century.


Most courses require German language proficiency, but there are a few classes that are offered in English.  The courses taught in German require at least an Intermediate level of German. Intensive German language classes are also offered according to language level at an additional cost.
