Guest Doctorate

Doctoral candidates from other universities have the option of completing a guest stay at TUM. Like in an individual doctorate, they will need to have a supervisor at TUM.

Visiting doctoral candidates do not need to have their diplomas recognized. They can take part in the transferable skills training at TUM-GS as long as there are still free places available.

For details, please contact your responsible thematic or departmental graduate center.

Guest doctoral researchers can enroll as students at TUM if their stay at TUM is longer than 3 months and they come within an offcial TUM exchange program or from one of TUM’s partner universities.

The enrollment fee is about 130 Euros per semester. While it is not mandatory, it has some benefits such as access to cheaper public transport.
