Going abroad

TUMexchange

Besides TUM School of Management’s TUM SOMex (incl. ERASMUS+) program, Technical University of Munich also offers an exchange program: TUMexchange.

Please contact the Technical University of Munich’s International Center for detailed information.

Freemover

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.

For further details concerning credit transfer, have a look here. For further support, please contact the International Office of TUM School of Management.

ATHENS Program

Europe’s leading higher education institutions offer intensive one-week-exchange-sessions under the name of ATHENS, which stands for “Advanced Technology Higher Education Network Socrates”.

The Technical University of Munich is the only German ATHENS member and offers courses on a range of different topics like engineering, natural sciences, mathematics or even general education. ATHENS courses are simultaneously held at all 24 ATHENS universities in March and November.

Internships

As an alternative – or in addition – to studying abroad, you can do an internship with a company in a foreign country. Working abroad gives you valuable insights into a different professional culture and provides you with helpful practical experience.

Our Career Center is happy to assist you with planning your future career. For all available service and support, please have a look here.
