Important information

After the mentoring round 2023/24, the program will be paused.

Many high school graduates decide to study at a university, but often do not have a clear idea of what to expect during their studies. To close this gap, we bring experienced students together with prospective students. Pre-study mentoring is a 1:1 mentoring program lasting approximately six months with the goal of giving you a real insight into student life at TUM.

How does the mentoring program work?

After your successful application and the matching with your mentor, the mentoring phase begins with a joint kick-off event in early November and lasts approximately six months. The exact dates can be found below.

You and your mentor will determine the schedule and frequency of the meetings. And to ensure that this is not forgotten, you also record this in a “contract”. How the exchange is to take place can be arranged individually between you.
