International applicants

Applicants who do not hold German citizenship and have obtained their certificates and degrees from non-German institutions have to apply simultaneously to the LMU International Office.
(International Office, Ludwigstraße 27, 80539 München). For further information, click here.

The aptitude assessment and the application to the International Office are two independent processes. The International Office reviews the qualifications obtained abroad in order to certify whether the applicant is eligible to study at LMU Munich. However, the International Office will not make a decision regarding the aptitude of the student and subsequent admission to the specific study courses.

Please note: It is not possible to make any changes once you have completed your application and submitted it online.
