International Department

About us

The International Department is a union of students who are interested in foreign countries, languages and culture. As part of the Student Council we help exchange students during their stay in Munich and advocate the intercultural exchange at TUM. Most of us either plan on going abroad during their studies or have already taken part in a student exchange. This experience inspires us to stay curious and improve our work.

Our biggest and most exciting project is the Buddy-Program. In this program every exchange student (International) is appointed to a local student (Buddy) during their stay in Munich. You’ll find more information here.

Another project is a brochure called "Exchangy", a guidebook for Internationals containing information about the faculty, TUM and Munich.

If you have any questions regarding TUM or the Buddy-Program just send as an e-mail at
