Information about a teaching mobility at TUM

We appreciate your interest in visiting the Technical University of Munich (TUM) for a teaching mobility within the Erasmus+ program. In order to ensure your application is successful, we would ask you to carefully note the following information.

The first step in the process is to find a contact person at TUM who is willing and able to host you and whose work corresponds to your own area of work or field of research. Their position should also be roughly equivalent to your own. Applications that do not match these basic criteria are likely to be turned down.

Please note: It is crucial that you outline your reasons for requesting a teaching mobility in your motivation letter clearly. We would remind you that you should explain not only what you hope to gain but what you think you can offer in terms of exchange of good practice and knowledge.
