In order to be able to study at LMU as a double degree student, you have to apply. Therefore please fill in the application request form and enclose the following documents:

  • Certified copy of Bachelor degree certificate (to ensure that you submit the correct documents, please consult the information sheet "Information on certified copies and translations")

  • Full CV up to the date of application submission
  • Enrolment certificate and confirmation of progress of studies from previously attended German universities

Official proof of German language proficiency is not needed. Please send the complete application to your double degree program coordinator at LMU, who will forward your documents to the International Admissions Office, together with the approval for entrance to the relevant master program.

After your application has been processed, you will receive a letter of admission from the International Admissions Office. This will also include the dates for enrolment. You must enrol in person and bring the originals of all documents submitted at the time of application.

If you receive an Erasmus+ scholarship during your stay, you do not have to submit an additional Erasmus application to LMU.

Health Insurance

During your studies at LMU, you must have adequate health insurance coverage. You will find more information on the International Office website.

Study Program and Learning Agreement

Your LMU supervisor will help you to choose and enrol for your courses. If you need an Erasmus Learning Agreement signed, please contact your supervisor.

Living in Munich

In Munich, student accommodation is allocated by the Studentenwerk  or by private student housing providers. Exchange students can apply for student accommodation run by the Studentenwerk via the LMU International Office. However, the housing provided is very limited and many students have to find private accommodation. You can apply for a room to your program supervisor. Please fill in the form and send it to your LMU program supervisor for signature. Nonetheless, it is highly recommended to start looking for private accommodation regardless. The International Office has a wealth of information here.

Language Preparation and Orientation

In March and September, LMU offers a language preparation and orientation program. The German language courses cater for all levels of proficiency. You do not only improve your language skills but also receive plenty of information about studying at LMU. The course also provides an excellent opportunity to get to know other students. The accompanying extracurricular program will also help you to get to know Munich and its surrounding are.

In the Student Guide, you will find further information about studying at LMU and life in Munich.

LMU Buddy Program

The International Office will, on request, match you with a buddy who will help you find your feet as a new student of LMU. If you take part in this program, your buddy will be a student of LMU who will help you with the organization of your stay in Munich. Your buddy will also be able to answer questions that you may have about studying at LMU or living in Munich.

You will find more information about the buddy program here. If you would like to have a buddy please write a mail
