Advice for Students from Students

The TUM Departmental Student Councils have numerous students eager to support fellow students when questions arise about their studies.

Current Information - Coronavirus SARS-Cov-2 - Covid-19

  • Due to the current situation, the application deadline for master’s degrees has been extended until 30 June 2020 for winter semester 2020/21. 
  • Due to the current restrictions in university operations, we currently cannot make any statement as to whether it will be possible to move to Germany and start a degree program in the 2020 summer semester. Therefore, we recommend that international degree seeking students who have received admission for the summer semester 2020 defer their studies to the winter semester 2020/21. Admission to the program will remain valid for the winter semester 2020/21. To defer your studies, you need to submit a new application via TUMonline during the regular application period for winter semester 2020/21 and upload your documents. You can find further information on how to defer the start of your degree program on our website. We ask our exchange students to follow the instructions provided by the TUM Global & Alumni Office.

Due to the current situation with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, our service points and other offices will remain closed for the time being. Please contact us by email instead. 

Please be sure to check our info-website on current measures regularly for updates.

The TUM Departmental Student Councils

The student council of a specific discipline (i.e. mechanical engineering), which represents students in addressing issues with the department, is the first point of contact when problems or questions arise. The TUM boasts a total of 19 departmental student councils. If you want to know which student council is responsible for your college or school, how to reach your representative, what services are available, and how you can become active in your student council, visit the student council homepage of your respective department.

Networking Online: Student Forums

Several departments have created online forums that allow students to post and discuss questions related to their studies, individual course offerings, or the general operation of the university.
