Becoming a member

​​​​​​​Applying for membership in the Experimental Medicine program requires several steps and input from you as well as your advisors and mentor. Therefore, this process realistically takes several months to complete.
Please, plan accordingly and apply within three months after starting your project.
You can apply online through the DocGS, (link is external)the online platform for doctoral candidates at the Technical University of Munich.
Please contact us(link is external) if you need a confirmation of the submission of the application to the program.
Doctoral candidates who are not already registered as students may be enrolled (link is external)as doctoral students at TUM for up to six semesters after having been listed as doctoral candidates of the School.

  • Application for the acceptance as doctoral candidate
  • Project Plan
  • Supervision Agreement
  • Certified copy(link is external) of your diploma and certificate (if you did your Master at TUM, too)
  • A copy of your passport or ID

If the application fulfills all the requirements, you will be placed on the preliminary doctoral candidate's list, waiting to be assessed by the Experimental medicines interdisciplinary steering committee to ensure that all quality criteria are met and will decide on your admission to the program.

If the decision is positive, you will become a member of TUM-GS and TUM MGC (those that are applying for both, otherwise only of TUM-GS) and will be listed as a doctoral candidate of TUM School of Medicine.
