Munich University of Applied Sciences is the second-largest University of Applied Sciences in Germany. Quality and diversity are our strengths. Our course offerings are multifaceted and practice-oriented: 14 departments in the areas of technology, economy, social studies and design provide teaching in over 70 study courses. Munich University of Applied Sciences is not a typical campus university: in fact, the faculties are spread over three large sites. As well as each having their individual flair, each of the campuses has its own cafeteria and library.

As a general rule, final course selection and registration do not take place until you have arrived in Munich. If you have to put together a Learning Agreement or Study Plan beforehand, please use the lecture timetables from the previous semester as a guide or ask your departmental co-ordinator at Munich University of Applied Sciences for advice. Courses from the various departments are open to all exchange students enrolled at Munich University of Applied Sciences irrespective of their own field of study and as long as prerequisites are fulfilled and/or places are available.
Workload per semester 30 ECTS
Munich University of Applied Sciences doesn’t own any on-campus residence halls. We do get a certain number of rooms in the student union’s residence halls which can be allocated to our exchange students, but none of that is on-campus.
For US-citizens there is no entry visa necessary. Students can apply for their residence title within the first three months in Munich. Health Insurance
Students from countries outside Europe and countries which the Federal Republic of Germany does not have a social security agreement with must provide evidence of sufficient health insurance. To do so, they can take out student health insurance with a statutory health insurance company here in Germany. Otherwise, they must present their insurance contract to a German statutory health insurance company to obtain exemption from compulsory health insurance. As representatives from German statutory health insurance companies usually attend the orientation events, evidence of health insurance can also be obtained directly at Munich University of Applied Sciences.
This program is currently only available to Engineering and Computer Science majors. If you are interested in this program please contact Rohan Palma or a CEA adviser.
