Parallel Studies

Generally, it's possible to study two degrees at TUM at once. You need to be aware, however, that this is an enormous challenge and needs to be well tought-out. Do not take this step lightly. Our General Student Advising is always there to help if you have questions or need assistance.

What do I have to know about parallel studies?

Enrolling in two degrees at once is generally possible – with the following restrictions:

  • It is not permissible to be enrolled in the same degree program at two different universities – regardless whether the programs are part or full time.
  • If you want to enroll in two degree programs with restricted admission (numerus clausus), you have to submit proof of a particular vocational, scientific or artistic interest. 
  • You cannot enroll for the studium MINT at TUM if you are enrolled in another degree program at any higher education institution at the same time.

How do I enroll in two degree programs?

The first step is the regular application for both degree programs. You can then accept more than one study place offer in TUMonline and specify that you intend to study both degree programs at once.

You only require specific permission if you intend to enroll in more than one degree program with restricted admission (numerus clausus). In this case, you need to submit a written, informal application to the Admissions and Enrollment Office, proving a particular vocational, scientific or artistic interest. As soon as a decision on your application is made, you will be notified accordingly.
