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.

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 outgoing@wi.tum.de.

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

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.
