Going Abroad

Either if you want to go abroad 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!

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!

Do a good deed - Rooms ready for incomings

To support international exchange students in finding accommodation for one or two semesters, TUM Global & Alumni Office's Welcome Office has launched an accommodation forum. Regular TUM students who are going abroad for one or two semesters can offer their rooms or apartments for sublet or exchange without any organizational effort. Further details are available on the website of TUM Global & Alumni Office.
