Enter a university abroad

Admission to LMU

  • Bachelor. 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.
  • Master. It is impossible to enter LMU for a master's program without confirming knowledge of the English language. You can do this by passing IELTS or TOEFL.

LMU campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in Munich. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. The educational institution has its own library. Here, students do their homework or just have a good time reading an interesting book. LMU regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs. For locals, this is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the cultures of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.
