General Information

In this section, you will find further information and links about the first steps to take after having been admitted and studying at TUM / in Munich / in Germany.

Visa Application
The electronic admission letter at TUM is your official proof of admission. This official legally binding letter of admission issued by the TUM entitles you to apply for a visa at German embassy or Consulate at your home country. Further please be prepared to show a proof of sufficient financial means.

The latest date for submitting all your documents is 18 November 2016. But we recommend to submit your documents for enrollment as soon as possible (e.g. health insurance, missing documents) so that you can start fully enrolled in October. Enrollment is required for course registration and the student card.

Financial issues
TUM mandatory semester fee is 117 Euro per semester.

Student Housing
Finding affordable housing is a problem in Munich and student housing is limited. You should explore all possible options, public and private. You are responsible to find your own housing in Munich.
Finding temporary housing (hotel, hostels etc.) during Octoberfest (17th September to 3rd October) is also very difficult and expensive. We recommend that you schedule your travel plans accordingly (e.g. between 4th – 15th of October, depending if you already have arranged for housing).

Start of Semester
The lecture period of the winter semester 2016/17 starts on Monday, October 17th 2016.

MSNE Welcome Event
There will be a welcome briefing on Monday, October 17th 2016. During the introductory briefing we will inform you about the curriculum and important steps and rules at TUM.
