The Student Affairs Division provides general services for prospective and registered students of LMU. In addition, the Division is responsible for measures that strengthen the University's international character and contact network, the organization and implementation of elections in the context of academic self-government, and the supervision of State Board Examinations for the teaching and medical (Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine) professions. The Division is not empowered to intervene in issues relating to the organization of study programs, teaching or examinations, responsibility for which rests with the individual Faculties.
Our primary task is to be of service to prospective and registered students. In such a large and highly diverse University, with a student population of some 50,000, provision of our services requires the frequent use of electronic communication and data processing. Nevertheless, we strive to be as accommodating and fair-minded as possible in our interactions with all of the students who consult us.
Our specialized and highly motivated personnel are equipped to deal with a wide range of practical issues relating to university studies — choosing programs, applying for a place, registration formalities, switching subjects, studying abroad, financial matters, aids for students with conspicuous or inconspicuous disabilities, coping with the challenges of raising children while studying, and successfully negotiating the transition to professional life. But we are also adaptable — ready and able to assess situations from the point of view of the students who come to us, and who rightly expect a high standard of competence from the administrative staff of an internationally renowned university.
Our services cover:
- Studying at LMU
- International (degree and exchange) students and Studying abroad
- Finding a job (LMU's Career Services)
- University elections (in German)
Members of LMU's staff will find more specific descriptions of the services we offer, together with all relevant forms and contact details, on the Service Portal.
Addresses, opening hours and contact persons of the most important institutions related to studying are available on LMU's website.
