Courses, course languages and examinations
If students have questions regarding courses and examination dates at TUM, please contact their responsible TUM International Affairs Delegate in their TUM department: http://www.international.tum.de/en/contact-and-counseling/international-affairs-delegates/
Courses offered at TUM are listed at the following link: https://campus.tum.de/tumonline/webnav.ini (important: students should NOT register in TUMonline by their own! Registration for all exchange students will be done automatically by TUM after they have been accepted! Thus, until then they should only use TUMonline without registration!)
To access the course catalogue, students can switch the language to English in the top right hand corner and select «courses» in the search bar. If there are no courses listed for the semester they want to study in (which usually is the case as they are planning their studies in advance of faculty timetabling), they should choose the same semester in which they are planning to come but for the previous year (the offered courses in each semester usually remain the same).
The main number of courses (at least 60%) students will attend at TUM need to be in the TUM department where they are nominated for / will registered with (at TUM). In addition to that, they can choose courses from other TUM departments.
Please note: many courses are only held in German – not in English – and it is very important for students to confirm the language of instruction for the courses they intend enrolling in! The fact that a course description is written in English does not necessarily mean that the course is also taught in English! You can find the course language within the course description.
è Please see the bilateral agreement regarding requested language levels. It is very important to check the agreements, as the requested language level differs depending on the TUM department! Please stick to the level laid down in the agreements, as acceptance cannot be guaranteed if disregarding it.
Please note again (see “semester dates”): examination dates depend on the TUM department, but usually take place between February and end March 2018. Unfortunately, earlier or extra examination dates for exchange students cannot be arranged! They need to take part in the regular examinations like all other TUM students!
