Welcome at TU Ilmenau

We would be very delighted to welcome you at Technische Universit√§t Ilmenau! Our university offers full or part time studies as well as opportunities for exchange students. 

Before you continue reading, we would like to draw your attention on some important facts:

- Please pay attention: Acceptance for a Master's program requires a so called Master's atptitude test. This aptitude test takes place as a formal examination of your certificates. Only in cases of doubt you will be asked to take an oral examination. You will be informed of the details during the application process or together with your admission. Please read about the the specific requirements of your future program, which are stated in appendix 3 of the study rules of your program. Link to the rules of our study programs.

- If you need to take DSH or/and additional subject examinations test before the Study program at TU Ilmenau begins, you will be provided with an admission letter together with an Invitation to attend Academic Preparation Course (APC). To be accepted to Academic Preparation Course you are required to have B1 level of German (for bachelor's application) or B2 in the language of the course (for master's application, English or German, depending on the chosen course).   

You should apply for your studies right in time! The visa formalities, which have to be considered by almost all applicants, might require about three months. Therefore the deadlines indicated here, namely 15th January for Sommer Semester and 15th July for Winter Semester, are relevant only for those applicants who are already in Germany or do not need Visum. Hence, we kindly recommend you to apply till the middle of May for winter semester and middle of November for Summer Semester.

For master's programs there are sometimes shortened application periods. For some of the master's programs, application is only possible for the winter semester. Therefore please note the special information in our applicant portal.
