Degree programs and Advising for International Students

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) offers more than 172 degree programs in the natural sci­ences, engineering sciences, medicine, life sciences and social sciences. Many of our degree pro­grams, particularly at the master’s level, are taught in English.

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.

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.

Preparing for your studies at TUM

  • TUM offers 3-6 week Summer Schools for international students interested in obtaining a master’s degree. These programs are designed to give students a taste of what it is like to study at TUM and offer a wide-range of courses and events, including German-language courses, subject-specific courses and cultural activities. Visits to internationally-recognized, German high-tech companies represent a highlight of the program.
  • SelfAssessment international is an online tool consisting of various exercises and questionnaires designed to help students determine their suitability for bachelor’s study in a technical discipline.

The double degree program offers qualified students the opportunity to receive a degree from both TUM and one of its partner universities. The goal of the double degree program at TU München is to integrate the strengths of its individual partner universities’ degree programs – unaltered – into the joint program. This joint program constitutes the linkage of the individual degree programs of the respective universities. Credits and examinations completed at the partner university will be recognized by TUM.
