Study abroad

Where are you headed – and how long do you want to stay? The Global & Alumni Office offers different programs allowing you to study at international partner universities for periods ranging from one week to two semesters.

Stays via Erasmus+

With Erasmus+, you can study for up to two semesters at a partner university within the EU. You don't have to pay study fees at the partner university and you will get additional financial support.

Go abroad with TUMexchange

If you want to study outside the European Union, TUMexchange is the right program for you. The application process starts at the beginning of the winter semester.

Study in Switzerland

Short stays abroad within Europe

Taster week abroad: Through the ATHENS program you can stay at one of 24 partner universities within Europe for one week. Applications are possible twice a year.

Study virtually within the EuroTeQ network

Through a joint course catalogue, TUM students can participate in virtual courses at the partner universities DTU, TU/e, L'X, TalTech, CTU, and Technion – and at TUM itself.

Stay abroad as a freemover
