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.
