If you are not participating in a structured program such as TUM SOMex (incl. ERASMUS+) or TUMexchange for your study abroad, you will be classified as a “Freemover”. This means that you will be organizing your studies abroad yourself and will have to cover tuition fees. Useful information for Freemovers can be found here.
Please check your desired university at the Anabin Database to ensure that courses abroad can be recognized at TUM School of Management. Courses from universities with an H+ status are eligible for recognition. If your desired university has a different status, please contact the International Office via firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the Registration of your freemover stay abroad in the Diploma Supplement, have a look here.
