Support for Scientists

There are also numerous support services for scientists who have fled Ukraine. Here you will find an overview of various contact points.

There are different paths for Ukrainian junior scientists to continue or to start their doctoral research at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Depending on your individual preferences and academic background, there are different ways for us to welcome you to our university.

General support, for example in finding a job or apartment in Munich, can be found here:

Ukrainians who are fleeing their home country because of the war can use public transport in Germany free of charge. 

This applies to all local trains (S-Bahn, Regionalbahn, Regionalexpress, etc.) as well as to all subways, streetcars, light rail systems and buses. The ticket can be either a so-called "0-Euro-Ticket", such as those issued by Deutsche Bahn for long-distance travel, or a valid identification document.
