Undergraduate international applicants to Ludwig Maximilians Universitat of Munich are invited to submit their applications to the International Office.
Some students may need to apply in the Student Office or the Foundation for University Admissions. Undergraduate students should first apply for degree program admission and submit by post or in person.
To apply applicants should download and fill out the form by hand. Deadlines for submission are January 15 for the summer semester and July 15 for winter.
Applicants must attach a high school diploma, German proficiency evidence, and a curriculum vitae.
German proficiency must be level C1 or higher and the proficiency evidence must be submitted before the application deadline. Letters of recommendation are not necessary, and electronic applications cannot be accepted.
Some of the documents should be submitted as officially certified copies; if the document is in a language other than German, English, French, Italian, Catalan, Latin, Portuguese, Romanian, or Spanish, it must be accompanied by an officially certified translation.
Graduate international applicants to the university will follow much the same procedure but must apply concurrently to both the International Office and their master’s program.
For the International Office, deadlines remain the same, but they may differ according to master’s program department policies.
Duplicates of any additional materials needed for submission to your master’s program will also needed to be submitted to the International Office, but basic document submission requirements remain the same as with undergraduate applicants.
Additional documents for the International Office include all higher education degrees and certificates, confirmation of programs previously studied (even if not completed) at other German universities, and if applicable, a marriage certificate or other documentation of name change.
Once the applicant has been admitted to the master’s program of their choice, the letter of admission should be provided to the International Office.
If the master’s program is taught in English, German proficiency is not necessary.
