Getting ready to study: events and open days

What's the right subject for me? Do I have the skills I need and how can I develop them further? How can I get financial support while studying in Munich? We're here to help you answer these and many other questions with a range of suitable events and information sessions.

Information sessions

During this session, advisors from the Central Student Advisory Office cover the most important milestones in your journey to studying the right degree program. How do you choose the right subject? What is university all about? How do you fulfill the admission requirements, apply for the degree program you want and complete your university registration? Any more questions? Ask away! This session provides a great opportunity to get answers to all your questions about opening a new academic chapter in your life — from a reliable source.

Where will I live, and how much will it cost? These two topics can affect where you decide to study, particularly in Munich. At this event, LMU students share their own experience and valuable tips. They outline the options for financial support when studying in Munich, or for a study abroad opportunity. They talk about student housing in Munich and what to look out for when looking for accommodation.


Use the contact form (in German). All registered participants will be sent an email with information on the login access to the webinar. This talk will take place if at least five participants register to attend. Group registrations possible!

Vocationally qualified applicants can participate in any of our regular information sessions. Here, staff from the Central Student Advisory Office and the Office of the University Registrar provide information for applicants without the standard university entrance qualification and a vocational training or a master craftsman certificate instead.

Attending a consultation is a necessary part of the application process for university admissions for vocationally qualified applicants. Following an individual consultation, a confirmation is generated and forwarded internally. This is why it is vital to fill in your full name (if applicable your maiden name) and your date of birth in the online registration form.

All events are held in German. Find more information and download the application form for university admission (in German)
