TUM – Technical University of Munich Menu

Medicine (Clinical Work)

Only students performing clinical work (semester 5 and beyond) can study at the TUM. To apply, please visit the TUMonline portal.

Students Transferring from Ludwig-Maximilans-Universität Munich:

In the fourth semester at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich (LMU), students can choose whether they wish to continue their studies at LMU or transfer to the TUM. After successfully completing the first phase of the federal medical exam, students may choose whether to enroll at LMU or the TUM.

If the capacity of one of the two universities is exceeded, the outcome of the student's federal medical exam will decide to which of the two universities the student will be assigned (results-oriented assignment method). The assignment is made by the LMU and cannot be influenced by the TUM!

Students who pursue their studies at the TUM will be given a letter of acceptance and the necessary documents. This letter of acceptance is usually received just before the beginning of the semester (early October or early April). Enrollment must then be completed before the start of classes.

  • Please create an online account at TUMonline and fill out an application form.
  • The application must be submitted to us with the following documents: a certified copy of your school leaving examination, proof of your federal medical exam (preliminary examination), proof of enrollment and proof of withdrawal (list of course of studies followed), a copy of your identity card, a copy of your resume)  

Students Applying Externally (Non-LMU Students)

Students from other universities, or students who completed their preliminary examination abroad and have had it recognized by the State Examination Board (Landesprüfungsamt), are welcome to apply from:


05/15-07/15 for admission to the winter semester.

11/15-01/15 for admission to the summer semester.


Applications and a list of required documents are found on the TUMonline portal, the date of receipt applies. Given that the preliminary examination usually isn't completed until after the application deadline for the first higher-upper division semester in clinical work, it may be submitted until 30.09 for winter semester or until 31.03. for summer semester. A further extension of the deadline for submission may be granted  in individual cases upon request as far as it is possible within the due process of admission.

NB: Current information on the maximum number of students who can be admitted to the clinical studies portion of the program can be found in the admissions statutes. LMU and TUM students have admissions priority. Any spots not claimed by these students will be made available to students from other universities. 

For specific legal provisions pertaining to admissions, see in §35 Paragraphs 2 and 3 of the Bayerischen Hochschulzulassungsverordnung [Bavarian Higher Education Admissions Regulations]
