UniGR student status
The UniGR student status allows students to benefit from numerous advantages of the University of the Greater Region and to study and live in an international and interdisciplinary way. Students of the Technical University of Kaiserslautern may use the UniGR student status to enrol at one or more of the partner universities (Liège, Luxembourg, Lorraine, Saarbrücken, Trier as well as htw saar), where they can attend lectures and sit exams, borrow books for free or use the cafeterias at reduced rates. There are no enrolment fees. It is thus very easy to gather intercultural experiences and become familiar with and help shape the different methods of teaching, learning and research at the partner universities in the neighbouring countries and states.
Please note: To ensure that the credits obtained at the partner university will be recognized at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern it is advised to sign a learning agreement.
