Short trips abroad

ATHENS Program

Throughout Europe, 25 renowned universities offer intensive courses for one week, taking place annually in March and November. The courses are on natural sciences, mathematical or technical themes, and include a final test and evaluation which can be rated with 2 ECTS. Futher information can be found on the web pages of the TUM Global and Almuni Office

Summer Schools

Many universities around the world offer compact seminars of 6 - 10 weeks, mostly in the lecture-free periods of the year. Summer Schools are an ideal opportunity, to get deeper into a particular theme within an internationcal environment, and to test, whether a longer stay abroad would be an option for you. Further information can be found on the website of the DAAD.
