Higher Education Entrance Qualification

If you would like to study at TUM, you must hold a higher education entrance qualification (HZB) or show proof of a professional qualification. Entrance qualifications for a university of applied science (Fachhochschulreife) alone do not fulfill the requirements for admission to study at TUM.

International higher education entrance qualification

  • Applicants who have received their university entrance qualification at an international school in Germany.

Qualified professionals as well as qualified tradespersons and the equivalent

  • Tradespersons as well as their equivalents are granted general university admission.
  • Qualified professionals are offered admission to subject-specific higher education if, after having successfully completed their studies, they have completed at least two years of vocational training and, subsequently, at least three years of full-time professional work experience - each in the desired technically-related field.
