PREPARING FOR YOUR STUDIES

TUM Asia is located in Singapore, the world’s only island city-state, and measures only approximately 700 square kilometers in size. This bustling metropolitan city-nation is home to 6 million people, yet somehow there is an abundance of greenery on this island. Students in the TUM Asia Master degrees will complete their coursework in Singapore. Whether you are a Singaporean student or from abroad, the new experience of completing your Masters with us will refresh your experience in Singapore, while enriching your academic journey by a whole lot! Students who have been offered a place at TUM Asia will have to prepare the following administrative items, on top of finding accommodation (for international students):

  • Pre-Arrival Process, which includes the application of Student Pass for international students (TUM Asia will guide you through this once you have accepted the place of admissions and have paid the registration fee)
  • Matriculation Documents
  • Medical Insurance
  • Miscellaneous (ie. Opening a bank account, getting a local phone number)
