Study and Language Courses

The Department of Architecture of the Technische Universität München offers its exchange students each semester a variety of courses and seminars in German as well as in English. The following websites provide an overview of the available courses:

Architecture Bachelor of Arts - "Basic level" (first and second year)
Architecture Bachelor of Arts - "Advanced Level" (third year and higher)
Architecture Master of Arts - "Master Level"

The Language Centre of the Technical University Munich also offers incoming students block German language courses. These usually take place in the weeks before the semester begins. Incoming students can also participate in language courses which are held over the course of an entire semester.

Living in Munich

The housing situation in Munich is problematic - especially at the beginning of the winter semester in October and November. Unfortunately, we can only provide assistance in finding suitable accommodation. We are not in a position to offer guaranteed housing.

The Technical University of Munich has a very detailed website about living in Munich and finding accommodation. It is often easier to find a suitable apartment when you have already arrived in Munich. We suggest to stay in a temporary or short-term hostel for the first few days. 

In Munich there are also several private student residences. If you are looking for an apartment or a shared apartment, you should check the private housing market in Munich.

For students of architecture there is also the opportunity to apply to live at the Oskar von Miller Forum.
