Please note

  • TUM students are considered outgoing students in the context of the joint EuroTeQ course offering and therefore please proceed as described above.

FAQ on how to participate in EuroTeQ courses

The details of the courses can be found in the respective offer section in the EuroTeQ course catalogue.

For each course there is a downloadable PDF form where you can find all the relevant information, including the prerequisites for participation, the type of exam, etc.

English proficiency requirements are listed in the downloadable PDF form in the course catalogue. An English certificate must be submitted with the application to the home university.

If you have found a course you are interested in in the EuroTeQ course catalogue, first register with TUM via our online application portal. Please choose the form " Application for EuroTeQ Virtual Mobility - Outgoing Form 2022/23". If you are interested in more than one course, you will need to fill out a separate form for each course.

After the deadline your information will be forwarded to the university offering the course you are interested in. Once the host university has completed registration for students from all partner universities, they will notify you of the next steps for final enrollment.

Yes, because for some courses there is also only a certain number of places available for EuroTeQ students. You can register for (and take) a maximum of three courses per student. In any case, please consider how much time you need for your main studies before registering for more than one EuroTeQ course.

The deadline for registration for EuroTeQ courses in the winter semester 2022/23 is June 6, 2022. We advise you not to wait until the last moment. Please submit your application form as early as possible.

The number of places for each course can be found in a PDF file attached to the desired course. Especially language courses are booked out very quickly.

We have established waiting lists for courses that we expect to exceed the maximum number of participants. You will be contacted by your home university if you are placed on the waiting list. If a student withdraws from a course, we will contact those on the waiting list.

For information on dates and deadlines, course schedule, and estimated study times for each course, please refer to the downloadable PDF file of the respective course on the EuroTeQ website.

Please note that due to the different lecture times of the partner universities it is not always possible to publish the schedules of all partner universities well in advance. Once all schedules are available, you will be informed by the respective host university as soon as possible so that you can coordinate your study plan.

Please note that at some universities, such as TUM and L'X, the teaching academic staff makes the final decision on whether to accept or reject EuroTeQ students. In some cases, it is checked whether the students meet all the requirements for successful completion of the course. If there are any further questions regarding your enrollment, you will be informed by the institutions concerned.

We understand that sometimes it is not possible to continue with your chosen course for various reasons, such as scheduling conflicts, lack of time, or different expectations. If you need to withdraw from a course for any reason, please inform the home university, the host university, and the lecturer and also provide a reason for the withdrawal. This will allow us to more effectively manage any further developments.

Especially faculty offering hybrid courses often invest extra effort, time, and resources to make the experience as attractive as possible for EuroTeQ students, since they are attending from abroad. Please keep in mind that withdrawing from a course on short notice has no consequences. However, it does affect the flow of the course for the rest of the group and the lecturer. Therefore, we are very grateful for as early a notification as possible.

Credit transfer depends on local regulations. The EuroTeQ partners strive to ensure mutual recognition of credits in the long term. In this initial phase, however, recognition is still tied to the respective regulations of the home university.

If you have successfully passed a EuroTeQ course, you may be able to have it recognized. In this case, please contact the examination office of your faculty/school. They will decide whether and how the course can be recognized.

 

Virtual courses at one of the EuroTeQ partner universities that you have successfully passed can be entered in the Diploma Supplement.

To do so, please submit a Confirmation of Participation to the e-mail EuroTeQ.mobility@xzv.tum.de. This must be signed by the partner university and include the exact start and end dates of the course. A template can be found here.

The course will be published in the Diploma Supplement in the field "6.1 Additional Information". The entry contains the following information:

    Participation in an online couse of the EuroTeQ Course Catalogue (virtual mobility*).
    DD-MM-YYYY - DD-MM-YYYY: "institution/university attended" in "country".

    *In a virtual mobility, the student participates remotely in online activities without traveling to the location of the host institution.


Data is entered into TUMonline four times a year: in March, June, September and December based on the previous month's data.
 

Please apply for the entry of your course in the Diploma Supplement as soon as possible after you have received a degree certificate in order to avoid possible delays in the issuance of your degree documents after your graduation, considering the dates for the entry. Once entered, you will receive a confirmation email. Please keep this in a safe place.

Yes, you generally have to take an exam. Especially if you want to receive credits. The type of exam can vary. It can be a written exam, a term paper, or a project work. You can find this information in the PDF files of the individual offers in the EuroTeQ course catalogue.
