If you are already in Germany and plan to transfer to TU Darmstadt, you need to consider a number of things.
If you are not a European Union national (including Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) and have been offered an employment contract with TU Darmstadt then you need a residence title which explicitly permits employment. Without this residence title you will not be able to sign your employment contract.
Comprehensive information on the relevant categories of residence titles as well as the change of a student residence title to a reseacher residence title can be found at . “make it in germany”
Detailed information on residence titles for researchers can be found at the . Federal Office for Migration and Refugees
Important: Please change your residence title before the start of your research at TU Darmstadt. If you live in another city than Darmstadt then apply for your new residence title before moving to Darmstadt.
The Welcome Centre supports you in the preparation of your application for a residence permit, providing advice on what options are available to you, helping you collate the correct supporting documentation and filling out the German forms.
