Exchange students (ERASMUS, TUMexchange): Required documents (after application procedure has finished and you are accepted at TUM)

Medical students have to send three additional documents before they can be booked into lectures, seminars and/or internships:

1. Copy of the matriculation document of their home university
2. Medical certificate (see file "Certificate of Medical Examination_english.pdf" below)
3. Certificate of Malpractice Insurance (= professional indemnity insurance)
--> The insurance must include not only civil liability, but all activities you perform in the clinic (= professional indemnity insurance). Accidents should be covered that might occur while performing your student activities on campus (clinical electives/courses/including observerships). It is of utmost importance that incoming students are insured in the event of a lawsuit. Exception: your university offers this kind of malpractice insurance. If not, we can send you the contacts of insurances who offer short time contracts for incoming students.

These three documents have to be sent by e-mail to, no later than 4 weeks before the start of term. Please understand that you will not receive your schedule and cannot start your courses, before we have received these documents!
