Information for International Applicants

If you are an international student with a university entrance qualification from your home country and you want to apply for a bachelor's program at TUM, your qualification must be checked by uni-assist to ensure that it is recognized in Germany. The uni-assist process may take up to four weeks, so make sure you send your documents to uni-assist well before the application deadline for your program. 

You can also check the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) admissions database to see whether your qualification will be valid in Germany. If your university entrance qualification is not recognized in Germany, you can qualify for university entry by taking a preparatory course at Studienkolleg in Munich or any other city in Germany. If you obtain good results in the mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering courses (T-Courses) you will have an excellent chance of being admitted to our bachelor's programs.

All international applicants for a bachelor’s program at TUM must also obtain a language certificate as proof of proficiency in the German language. Please note: you may need to register for any tests up to 2 months in advance.
