Students

LMU Munich attracts a great number of highly motivated international students every year – 14 percent of its 50,000 students come from countries other than Germany. Some 7,500 students from abroad pursue a degree here, while some additional 500 students spend a semester or two at LMU Munich as exchange students from partner universities or as participants in LMU’s Junior Year Abroad programs.

The International Office is the first port of call for students from all over the world who are interested in completing a degree here or just visiting for a semester or a year, as well as for students from LMU Munich who want to spend some time studying abroad.

LMU Munich offers support for international students through a variety of services that are continually improved. Because of this, LMU - along with 100 other universities from Germany - joined the Code of Conduct.
