TUM Language Center

The TUM Language Center plays a central role in the internationalization initiative of the Technical University Munich. We offer students and staff diverse opportunities to develop competence in a foreign language in addition to professional communication skills. Our program strongly emphasizes intercultural communication in the context of scientific research.

Currently all TUM Language Center services are being offered online.

The programme for summer semester 2021 is published in TUMonline, registrations are possible until April 8th.

The application period runs from 25.02.2021 - 08.04.2021.
Places are not allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
You can therefore register at any time during the registration period.
You can find information on how to register in TUMonline here.
