About TUM PREP
Excellent North American students and students of the Imperial College London are invited to apply for the TUM Practical Research Experience Program (TUM PREP), a research internship program of approximately 9 weeks of research work that runs over the course of the summer. Working on a research project under the supervision of a TUM academic, TUM PREP participants will build up and further refine their research skills, learn more about the specifics of the German higher education and research landscape, and become members of the diverse scientific community at Germany’s top-ranked technical university.
TUM PREP applicants demonstrate outstanding academic achievements, can easily adapt to new environments and are driven by a general curiosity for science and research. During their stay and beyond, program participants serve as ambassadors for their home institutions and for TUM, respectively, and will contribute to the strengthening of international research networks. TUM Global & Alumni Office will arrange accommodation for all program participants, and award scholarships to students in need of financial support. Orientation days – including information and networking events as well as a cultural program – and student buddies will ensure that program participants are well integrated into the local student body, and will have a chance to immerse themselves in the unique cultural and economic environment of Munich and Bavaria.
