Learn English at the TUM Language Center
Whether it is spoken as a first, second or foreign language, English is the most spoken language in the world. Improving your English can therefore unlock many doors for you whether you would like to travel, work at an international company or watch your favourite TV Series in the original language. Brushing up your English can also help you excel in the many courses at TUM that are offered in English and help prepare you for courses in English during an exchange semester. We offer many different courses that are designed to improve your English speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in academic and other contexts.
Winter term 2022/23
Choose from over 90 academic English courses, most of which focus on English for special purposes or advanced writing skills.
The English Writing Center offers free one-to-one consulting for TUM students and staff of all levels. We use your own English texts as our raw material to develop your competence in written English.
These courses offer in-house group instruction to administrative employees.
Additionally, all courses confer the needed qualification for Erasmus+ international language exchanges.
Tandem program with the University of Cambridge
Since 2019, TUM students in selected English seminars have had the opportunity to take part in a tandem program with the University of Cambridge, Department of Engineering. Cambridge engineering students learning German (at B1-B2 level) join TUM students in Zoom sessions in the winter semester for discussions and self-selected topics and practice activities that allow both sides to hone and enrich their linguistic and intercultural competencies. Participants are encouraged to find longer-term tandem partners from within the group and continue their tandem exchanges privately.
Online Program vhb

They are especially recommended if you do not need to earn ECTS. All courses at vhb are free of charge for TUM students and registration is done with the TUM ID.
