For international applicants:
This Master's program can be completed in English and knowledge of the German language is not relevant for your admission. Nonetheless, as you are studying in Germany, the Bavarian State Government insists that you acquire at least a basic level of German language knowledge during your course of study.
In case you already have knowledge of the German language (level A1 or higher), please upload the proof as part of the application. The certificate must indicate the highest level of your acquired German language skills.
Students who did not provide proof of proficiency in German, are admitted on condition to complete one module providing integrative knowledge of the German language within the first two semesters of their studies. All modules counting for your study program will be recognized for this. We strongly recommend to also participate in a German language course, e.g. at the TUM Language Center.
This program begins in the winter semester only.
