We are currently receiving an increasing number of reports of fraudulent activities in connection with applications to TUM. On this occasion, we would like to point out once again that
- the Technical University of Munich does not cooperate with agencies. To study at TUM, you should only apply directly to the university.
- the Technical University of Munich never requests payments to agencies during the application process.
- the Technical University of Munich only sends e-mails from official e-mail addresses: @tum.de, @zv.tum.de or @mytum.de.
- the Technical University of Munich never requests payments of any kind before admission to the program has been granted. If you require a VPD by uni-assist, you will have to pay a processing fee to uni-assist. However, uni-assist will only check certain documents and not issue admission statements or similar.
- always makes notifications or other official documents available via the online portal TUMonline.
