Technical University of Munich (TUM) — public non-profit university. It is located in Munich, Germany. TUM is an active member of European University Association (EUA), Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research (CESAER), TU9, Top Industrial Managers for Europe (TIME), German Institut of Science and Technology (GIST) - TUM-Asia, EuroTech Universities alliance, participant in the TEMPUS IV-programme, partnership with King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).
QS International Ranking of best universities placed the institution among the top-40 in the world. The independent international ranking THE is very attentive to universities' research output. According to THE, this higher education institution is in 30 place among universities with the most research publications per year.
TUM does research in different fields of study and invites students to bachelor and master programs.
The academic calendar at TUM is divided into two semesters. For convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. At all public universities in Germany, tuition is free. Students pay only a semester fee, which is about 125 USD per year. The educational institution helps with tuition fees through financial support programs. They are available to local and international students. Check the university website for up-to-date information on prices and scholarships.
When choosing an educational institution, it is necessary to take into account additional costs: accommodation, transportation, educational materials, meals and personal expenses.
Schooling in Germany lasts longer than in other countries. Therefore, it is impossible to enter a university immediately after the 11th grade — first, you need to eliminate the academic difference. There are special educational institutions for foreign students — Studienkollegs.
The campus of TUM is located in Munich. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. During the period of study, students can use the university library, where they can do homework and write scientific papers. TUM accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
It is possible to stay in Germany for an additional 18 months after graduation. To do this, you need to apply for a graduate visa, which allows you to work without providing an offer from an employer. TUM graduates find jobs quickly, partly because the university has a good reputation among employers according to the QS World University Rankings.
