Herzlich willkommen am KIT!

The International Students Office (IStO) Welcomes All International Students, Exchange Students, and Temporary Students.

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is “The Research University in the Helmholtz Association.” As the only German University of Excellence with national large-scale research facilities, we offer our students unprecedented teaching and learning conditions. The beginnings of KIT can be dated back to 1825. KIT’s present organizational structure results from the merger of Karlsruhe University (TH) and Karlsruhe Research Center in 2009.
This has been the only merger of this kind in Germany so far.
We from the International Students Office are happy that you are interested in studying at KIT or that you have already started studies at KIT.
