Who we work for
What our researchers say
If you have just arrived in Dresden and don’t know too much about the city, people or TU Dresden, I can assure you that the best place to start is TU Dresden Welcome Center. It will simply become a great part of your happy moments during the education in Germany. I dedicate this verse from Persian poet Hafiz to the Dresden:
May your goodness always increase
And your smiling face never cease.
Mitra from IranGuest researcher at TU Dresden
Unfortunately, due to some last minute changes in the plan I could not personally come and thank you. So, I am writing this email to thank you so much! ‘Thank you’ is really a small word to express my gratitude. The job you are doing is incredible and I learned a lot about Germany from your events. If it wasn’t you, I would not have explored many regions. I already miss Dresden and the Welcome Center! I wish you a lot of success and hope the Welcome Center gets even bigger! Thank you once again!
