The international orientation of TUM is also reflected in its comprehensive offer of exchange programs and opportunities for stays abroad. Our goal is to offer each TUM student the opportunity to complete a degree program component or an internship abroad. 

Within the scope of your studies at TUM, you are given the opportunity to apply for a structured stay abroad through Erasmus+, TUMexchange, the Swiss-European Mobility Program, the Double Degree program and department-specific partnerships.

Further, the ATHENS program offers TUM students and doctoral candidates easy access to stays abroad in an international environment. Twice a year, we offer challenging one-week intensive courses on a variety of topics from the fields of Engineering and Natural Sciences. Please find out more about the numerous summer programs offered by our partner universities.

In addition, there are various funding options such as the PROMOS program which can help you to realize your dream of a stay abroad.

Spending time abroad not only enhances and consolidates your subject-specific and linguistic knowledge but also offers you an important advantage for your future career as well as an incomparable personal experience.
