  1. Language skills / requested levels and confirmations

At TUM many of the classes offered are conducted in German (see point 7). If your students undertake courses conducted in German and don't have a reasonable knowledge of German, they could have a problem studying here.

If your students want to attend courses taught in German at TUM, proficient German skills are key. If they want to attend courses in English, they should also have excellent English skills:

TUM departments request a German respectively English certificate of at least B1 (exceptions: TUM School of Management, School of Education and Center of Life and Sciences in Weihenstephan: here a level of at least B2 is requested). The required language skills can also be found in the agreements between our universities.

Accepted certificates which confirms the students´ current language skills:

  • Can be a certificate / confirmation issued and signed by the home university or any language school.
  • Can be included in the official transcript.
  • Official certificates as Goethe, Toefl, etc are not necessary.


Not accepted confirmations:

  • Self-assessment tests (e.g. Europass, OLS test) without signature of the home university
  • Self-written statements of students without signature of the home university

 Language confirmations must be included in the application sent by May 15.


  1. German courses

Even if students will be attending lectures in English at TUM, a basic knowledge of the German language is recommended to make the most of the stay and make daily life in Munich a smoother and more enjoyable experience.

Therefore, we always recommend that our incoming students participate in German courses:

  1. German courses at TUM:https://www.sprachenzentrum.tum.de/en/languages/german-as-a-foreign-language/ (there are no special language courses only for exchange students at TUM)
  2. Online-courses:https://www.deutsch-uni.com/gast/duo/info/index.do?do=index&lang=en
  3. Some other online courses:https://www.study-in-germany.de/en/discover-germany/german-language/german-language_41118.php
  1. Courses and language requirements / examinations

All questions regarding course and examination dates at TUM?

Please contact the TUM department in charge: see here under “Information on courses, exams, Learning Agreement/Study Program and other academic matters” under the TUM department your students are interested in: https://www.international.tum.de/en/exchangestudents/study-at-tum-with-erasmus-or-semp/

 Where to find courses?

è  All courses that are offered at TUM are listed at the following link:  https://campus.tum.de/tumonline/ee/ui/ca2/app/desktop/#/login (important: Students should NOT login in TUMonline only click button “continue without login”! Registration for all exchange students will be done automatically by TUM after they are accepted! Descriptions can be found on our website (see: Application procedure for Erasmus+ and SEMP / 2. Apply at TUM / Required documents /  Learning Agreement / Study plan): https://www.international.tum.de/en/exchangestudents/study-at-tum-with-erasmus-or-semp/


How to find the course and module catalog?

Your students can find a list of all TUM Departments and TUM Schools here https://campus.tum.de/tumonline/wborg.display_virtuell?PORGNR=1&PORGTYP=28567. Your student can click on the relevant TUM Department /School. Under the section “Teaching and Research” your students can find the Module Catalogue and Courses.

If there are no courses listed for the semester they want to study in (which usually is the case as they are planning their studies in advance of faculty timetabling), they should just choose the same semester for which they are planning to come but for the previous year (the offered courses in each semester usually stay the same). 


Important: The main number of courses (at least 60%) your students will attend at TUM need to be in the TUM department where they are registered in at TUM! Additionally, they can choose courses from other TUM departments.


Language of instruction?

Please note: many courses are only held in German – not in English – and it is very important for students to confirm the language of instruction for the courses they intend enrolling in. In addition, the fact that a course description is written in English does not necessarily mean that the course is also taught in English! They can find the course language within the course description.


Language requirements?

B1 or B2 in the language(s) of instruction. Please see the Erasmus agreement regarding requested language levels. It is very important to check the agreements, as the requested language level is different from TUM department to TUM department! Please hold on the level mentioned within the agreements, as acceptance cannot be guaranteed if disregarding it.


Date of examinations?

Examinations depend on the TUM department, but often take place: -> see semester dates point 1.

Unfortunately, earlier or extra examination dates for exchange students cannot be arranged. They need to take part in the regular examinations as all other TUM students.


Can students write a thesis instead of attending courses?

Yes. If your students are planning to write a thesis / project within Erasmus+ SMS exchange program or SEMP at TUM, they can only do so at the TUM department they are assigned to (within agreement places). They cannot do it in another TUM department or any external company / institution if they want to get enrolled at TUM. They also need to find a TUM supervisor by themselves until application deadline. 



  1. Further steps: acceptance, admission letter,...


  1. After receiving all students´ application documents we will forward them to the concerned TUM department wherethe final decision of acceptance is made.
  2. After students are accepted by the TUM department,they will receive their official TUM admission letter via e-mail from TUM G&A Office, which will be sent out from July on! In the admission letter they can find further information about next steps:
  • For enrollment every student attending TUM (also all exchange students!) has to pay theStudent union fee and the solidary contribution for the semester ticket of in total 144,40€ / semester (current status).
  • Additionally every student needs to haveproof of a German national insurance (see “Obtain health insurance”) to enroll at TUM (if students are over 30 years old, they do not need an insurance policy for enrollment at TUM).


  1. Housing


We have a very tense situation regarding accommodation in Munich. The application for the Erasmus-/ Swiss Program at TUM does not enclose the supply of a hostel room / Service package offered by the Studentenwerk or TUM. These students need to search independently for accommodation on the private market. Students should only start apartment hunting after they received their acceptance letter from TUM.

Useful tips for finding rooms on the private market in Munich (single rooms, apartments, WGs ("Wohngemeinschaften")) can be found here under “Information for exchange students of other programs, e.g. Erasmus”:  




  1. Tax-ID for opening a bank account


Since 2018 it is obligatory to show a tax-ID for opening a bank account: When coming to Germany, students should bring their own tax-ID from their home country. Please help them with this matter.

They can also get a German tax-ID. But this is much more difficult and needs a lot of time (6-8 weeks). This time is often too late for opening a bank account, as e.g. landlords, TUM sports (if taking part) need bank data earlier. So it is not really an option. 

  1. Learning Agreement / OLA

Learning Agreement will be signed by the TUM department (not the TUM Global & Alumni Office).

Signatures are available at earliest after students received their TUM admission letter (see point 8). Students need to contact their TUM departmental coordinator to receive the signed version, as in most cases it will not be done automatically. This can be done via e-mail or when students are at TUM.

We would like to encourage all Erasmus partners to use OLA.

In case of using OLA or any other system:

The correct responsible person at TUM to enter in this system is the contact person in the TUM department (not the staff of Global & Alumni Office!).

Please see here for the correct person who will deal with the learning agreement and sign it:


  1. Signatures

Confirmation of stay:

Will be signed by the TUM department https://www.international.tum.de/en/internationalaffairs/ (not the TUM Global & Alumni Office):

  • Signature of arrival: Will be signed by TUM department only AFTER the first academic activity at TUM (e.g. Orientation weeks, language course). Not earlier. Students needs to contact their TUM department to receive signatures.
  • Signature of departure:  Will be signed by TUM department only at the time of the LAST academic activity at TUM (e.g. end of courses, exam, end of thesis). Not earlier or later. Students needs to contact their TUM department to receive signatures.

All detailed information regarding the application process, health insurance, German courses at TUM and in Munich, formalities in Germany, ....etc. can also be found in our attached Fact Sheet or at the following link: https://www.international.tum.de/en/exchangestudents/
