Auditor Program For Refugees

TUM is offering refugees who had already started or were about to start pro­grams of study in their coun­tries of origin the chance to attend courses at TUM as part of an auditor program. Starting in October, they will be able to au­dit (sit in on) course modules in German or English. This program serves as an opportunity for refugees to familiarize themselves with the German higher education system. TUM students will act as mentors to offer individual sup­port.This offer is aimed at refugees who had already begun or were about to start a program of study in their country of origin. Sufficient knowledge of German or English is required to take part.

Refugees interested in applying to TUM as a regular student, please have a look at our degree programs.
