International Students

Anyone considering university study in Germany has a lot to think about: How can I finance my study and stay? How good must my German language skills be? Where do I apply? How do I get to know other students - and what kind of services does the Technical University of Munich (TUM) offer for international students? Here we have compiled the most important things you need to know. 

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.
