Studying and Conducting Research at the Bundeswehr University Munich (UniBwM)
Opportunities for International Students
The main purpose of the Universität der Bundeswehr München is to provide officers and officer candidates of the Bundeswehr with a university education. Thus at present it is only possible for members of the armed services in friendly nations to complete a program of study at our university, and this must take place in the framework of a scholarship or grant. If you are interested in learning more, please visit the German embassy in your home country and ask for information regarding programs of study and other opportunities in the German military attaché.
On the basis of bilateral cooperation agreements, it is possible for civilians from foreign countries to complete a portion of their studies at the Universität der Bundeswehr München. Currently, we offer foreign students the opportunity to stay for up to 12 months.
It is also possible to stay at the University to complete an internship or final year project in one of our departments. Please prepare a cover letter, your résumé and a description of your topic or your request for an internship, and ask the international office of your home university to send this to us.
The International Office of the Bundeswehr University Munich provides counseling to all exchange students and visiting scholars from abroad, who would like to study or participate in research at our university.
In addition to assist with all of the necessary administrative preparation, the International Office also helps finding German language courses (at various levels) and offers a comprehensive cultural program and excursions to all international students.
