Come to Munich - be at home

Who can participate in the project seminar?

Students of all universities in the area of the Studentenwerk Munich can participate.

I am an international student and I do not speak german. Can I still participate?

The project is aimed at all students - german and internationals. One workshop is always in German, at least one (or two) workshop(s) are in English. You can choose in which workshop you want to participate. The Studentenwerk Munich also provides financial support for Deutschkurse bei der Universität München when you are attending the project seminar and want to improve your German skills. This grant is a one-time amount of max. 200 euros for the cost of max. one course.

I am not in Munich during the registration period. Can I still register?

Since the registration process is online, it would not be a problem if you are not in Munich during the registration period. However, please make sure to let us know if you will not be in Munich until later in the semester (after the start of lectures).

Does the registration oblige me to participate?

Yes, those who sign up for a binding application should also participate in the program.

Which events do I have to attend?

1) You must participate in all 4 workshops sessions of one group. There is group A or B and you'll select one group and attend all workshops sessions of this group. A combination of the groups is not possible!

2) You will also attend three events that you can choose from our program.

3) Additionally to that you will need to hold a presentation at the last workshop session. A learning diary ist also required. Details under ECTS.

How do I know when and where the events are taking place?

The management of the project seminar usually informs the respective participants 1-2 days in advance about the exact time, the meeting point (or rather the link) and the expected duration of the event. If you have registered for an event and have not received an infomail until the day, please contact the event management at Interkulturelles@stwm.de.

Can I take part in more than three additional events?

In principle, the event programme is designed to allow everyone to attend three events. However, if there are free spots at individual events, they may be filled by other participants, even if they are already participating in three other events. In any case, contact the event management and visit only events for which you have been confirmed.

I am sick on the day of an event or have no time for other reasons.

In this case, please inform the event manager immediately of the contact details that you received in the associated infomail (usually email address or mobile phone number).

I could not attend an event.

If you can present a doctor's certificate in case of illness, this is not a problem. However, you will need to attend a replacement event. There may still be free spots in another event in the current semester. Otherwise you will have to make up for the default in the following semester. In urgent cases (e.g. as an international homecoming at the end of the semester, graduation) you can also get an alternative task from us. If only parts of an event are missed, a solution will be agreed individually.

Attention: Participation in all workshops is obligatory and cannot be replaced by other events. If you are missing, you cannot get a certificate/ECTS-points and you have to cancel the program. The workshops are a prerequisite for intercultural awareness and reflection in cultural events.

When do I get my certificate?

After evaluation of all services by the workshop trainers, we will issue the certificates. As a rule these are completed at the end of the current semester or the beginning of the following semester and then will send to you via email (or if desired by post).

You will also receive an infomail.

How does the crediting of ECTS points at TUM work?

The evaluations of the accomplishment are carried out first by the workshop trainers. As soon as they have created the marks and sent them to us, we, as project organisers, contact the Carl von Linde Academy and the Munich Center for Technology in Society (MCTS). These will then carry the marks for you. You do not have to register for the exam at the Carl von Linde Academy.

How to register?

A registration form and detailed information can be found at registration.

Please note:

As the Student Union (Studentenwerk München) is organising the project seminar, it is NOT possible to register via TUMonline. The mark or the remark "passed" will be visible only after participation and handing in of your essay to the workshop leaders, normally at the end of the semester.
