Welcome to TUM

Exchange students are students who study at the TUM for a maximum of three semesters as part of an exchange program (eg Erasmus and TUMexchange) or a bilateral university agreement. They are still matriculated at their home university and continue to pay the fees there. At TUM they have to pay every semester the fee of 114,50€ including the student union fee of about € 52 and the solidary fee for the semesterticket of about € 62,50.

If you have been selected by your home university as an exchange student for a period of study at the TUM under one of our exchange programs, please read the next few pages of our website for some important information about your forthcoming stay in Munich and exchange visit to the TUM.

Please pay particular attention to the section on Application of your exchange program, since we can only accept you as an exchange student at TUM if you have submitted an official application for admission in accordance with the guidelines. Again we want to emphasize the importance of sufficient German language skills if you plan to follow any German lectures or courses.
