FAQ

I have questions regarding my application documents / certification of documents

Please contact the admission office: http://www.tum.de/en/studies/international-students/application-and-admission/

Is my undergraduate degree eligible to apply for a Master at TUM?

TUM accepts certificates from all Universities with "H+" status in ANABIN

I already studied at another University. Can I transfer to TUM?

In principle a transfer from another University to TUM is a standard application. After matriculation you can apply for a transfer of credits. This transfer is learning outcome based and will be decided for every individual module, if it is possible to transfer, or not. So it is likely that not all of your credits can be transferred and you need to retake a significant number of credits. This defines the semester you are assigned to and consequently the duration you would need to study at TUM.

I only want to pick modules in English language in Bachelor/Master Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik. Do I still need to provide a proof of German proficiency?

Yes, you have to. The language requirement is dependent on the program, not on the particular modules.

But I don't have a proof of German proficiency (or only beginner's level). Is there still a way to study at TUM??

If you have a proof of English proficiency, you can opt for one of our international Master programs at TUM or our undergraduate and graduate programs at our Singapore Campus that use English as medium of instruction.

Can I apply now and hand in my language certificate later?

No, language certificates have to be handed in with your application, latest by the application deadline. Conditional admission cannot be granted.

Does TUM offer language courses for applicants?

TUM offers language courses for enrolled students only. But there are plenty of language schools all over the world that prepare for obtaining one of the accepted language certificates. From our experience it takes about one year to learn sufficient German without previous knowledge, maybe shorter, if one already lives in Germany and experiences “everyday life”. We cannot recommend a certain school.

Is the part-time option availabe for all Masters?

The part-time option is only available for the Master Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik. The Masters Communications Engineering, Power Engineering, Neuroengineering, Integrated Circuit Design, and Green Electronics are only available for full-time studies. Student visa are not graned for part-time studies.

Which scholarships are available?

TUM does not charge tuition fees. As a consequence there are no specific scholarship programs. Anyhow, there are some financial aid programs available. Please refer to the TUM main page for more information. For other scholarship options please contact your local DAAD office, as they know best which scholarships are available for students from your region.
