International students at the welcome event. Photo: TUM.PH & TUM.IN.We support stays of our students abroad, in particular through our extended number of exchange programs with worldwide renowned universities, and we receive each year an increasing number of exchange students as well as international Master students.
If you want to go abroad either for one or two semesters, pursue a joint degree with another institution, do an internship for six months or take a one-week intensive course –– at the TUM we support you and offer you a possibility for each of these cases! However, to have a successful experience abroad and make the most of it, you have to start preparing it on time. This applies on one side to learning the language, but also for your application. Consider that for stays outside Europe, you should start informing yourself at least 1,5 to 2 years in advance.
A great opportunity for TUM physics students to get in contact with international exchange students is through the fellow program of the Physics Department. To look after an exchange student makes you aware of the experience and gives you extra points when applying yourself for an exchange program to go abroad!
All about studying at the TUM and living in Munich for international exchange students, international degree students and external students.This goes from the selection of courses, learning German and the administrative as well as practical support from other TUM students to housing search, excursions and cultural program.
Every year in May all our international students as well as former outgoing exchange students represent their home and guest countries, respectively, at the International Day. This colourful exhibition takes place in the Magistrale (big entrance hall) of the Math/Info building. You can interact there with your fellow students and chat about countries, cultures and exchange destinations. All TUM members are welcome!!! This is a joint project from the faculties of Infomatics, Mathematics and Physics.
