General Student Advising

The TUM General Student Advising supports prospective students in determining the course of study best suited to their needs and wishes. In addition, we support current students in dealing with the various challenges of their study.

Current Information - Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2

Due to the spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, all opening hours of our service units and offices will be cancelled until the end of May.

However, as an alternative to a personal consultation, we are currently offering our advising services via video chat or telephone. Please send us an email to studium@tum.de with the following information:

  • What topics do you want to discuss?
  • What school-leaving certificate or bachelor's degree do you pursue or have?

We will then contact you by email and send you the relevant contact details.

Talking helps! We advise and provide options!

During a personal advising session, we take time to examine your individual situation. Working together, we develop options to motivate you to take decisions. In this process, we focus on your needs, experiences and skills.

Reasons for seeking advice can be (but are not limited to):

  • Which course of study is best suited to my needs and interests?
  • Do I fulfill the requirements for studying at TUM? What might be an alternative to studying?
  • How do I decide what to do?

Are you already studying at TUM?

Reasons for seeking advice can be (but are not limited to):

  • Am I (still) in the appropriate course of study?
  • I am in danger of being exmatriculated – what does it mean and what should I do?

Our advising service is voluntary, free of charge, confidential and neutral.
