English Coaching Program

The English Coaching Program offers tailored support to professors, academic & administrative staff and doctoral candidates who use English in their work at TUM. The program is free of charge.
Professors can receive individual coaching to improve their spoken and/or written English. We can also attend your lectures, video-taping them if desired, and offer feedback. Coaching sessions can take place at your department or in a room of the Language Center.
Small Group Courses
Academic/administrative staff and PhD candidates can request small group courses tailored to the group. Depending on the coach's availability, individuals within the group may also book up to 10 sessions of one-to-one appointments per semester, but no more than two appointments in any week. Please be sure to plan your coaching contact in good time for your deadlines. The aim of the coaching program is to help you improve your independent English skills. Since we serve the whole university, we do not and can not offer extensive editing of texts or more intensive hours on demand.
