For international staff, visiting scholars, postdocs and doctoral candidates

If you work or do research at TUM during the day you can learn German in the evening in our program "DaF for Staff". The courses are cost free and run over eight weeks.


Each evening-course lasts 8-weeks independently of the semester schedule. All courses are free of charge. Due to the current situation all courses take place online and live at the given time. You can therefore choose and register for a course regardless of the location indicated in the table.
