If you did not obtain your first degree (usually a bachelor’s degree) in a country within the European Union (as well as Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Lichtenstein) you have to apply via Uni-Assist in addition to TUMonline. Uni-Assist will make a preliminary evaluation on whether you meet the entry requirements for the Master program at TUM. Please note that the Uni-Assist application needs to be completed before the end of the application period, however, the document that Uni-Assist will provide you with (VPD), can be handed in later, even after the application period has ended.
We follow a two-stage assessment procedure to be able to select the best possible candidates for the Master in Consumer Science. In the first stage of the assessment procedure, candidates are evaluated based on their previous academic background. If an applicant’s eligibility is still questionable after stage 1, the applicantion will move on to stage 2, where the academic background as well as the essay will be evaluated.
We expect our applicants to have a high standard of scientific writing, therefore applicants who fail to meet this standard will unfortunately be excluded from the assessment process in case plagiarism is detected in the essay.
Please find the description of the assessment process in the grey box “useful information” located on the right side of this website.
