The application period for the winter term 2020/21 will start on 1st January 2020, and the deadline will be May 31st 2020. Your application has to be in the post box of TUM at this date. So please consider the run time of the post service from your country to Germany.
Please note that we select our students carefully and that this process will take some time.
Therefore, we will split the selection process into two parts: In the first part we will handle all applications which are sent until March 15th, in the second one we will handle the remaining applications.
The selection will take approx. 2 month, i.e. the admission letters will be available approx.
- end of May if you apply until March 15th
- end of July if you apply until May 31st
If you need to apply for a visa we therefore recommend to apply until the earlier deadline.
Please note: A visa must be applied for well in advance of your departure (at least 2 months ahead of time!).
You will need to apply for your visa at the embassy / consulate of the Federal Republic of Germany in your home country.
Applicants from EU/EWR nations as well as some other nations are exempt from this regulation. Also see here about countries whose citizens require / do not require a visa.
All applicants who did not obtain their qualification for postgraduate studies (usually a bachelor's degree) in a country within the EU/EEA have to hand in documents additionally to uni-assist.
The deadlines for handing in documents to uni-assist are in general the same as for your application at TUM. However, uni-assist needs additional processing time (up to 6 weeks). TUM will start processing your application only after receiving the results of the documents check of uni-assist.
Therefore, we recommend to hand in documents to uni-assist 6 weeks before application deadline (15th March or 31st May).
