Stepping out of my comfort zone
Tips: Initially, it was difficult to adjust to a new language. I think people need to keep an open mind when coming here and not stick to their comfort zones. I did not opt for any scholarships but they do exist for specific courses. I am pretty satisfied with my university and course. I feel like there are other countries I would be more comfortable in but it is not difficult to live here.
Likes (Public transportation): Campus is well-connected and the public transport infrastructure is very good. Students get reduced ticket prices as well. There are occasional delays or cancellations but I think that is common everywhere. If you stay in a well-connected area your life is significantly easier.
Dislikes (Indian Food): The restaurants here very expensive and the food is pretty subpar. It is much more economical to cook ourselves. A standard meal for one here would cost in the range of 10-15 euros. Along with inflation that is pretty pricey for a student unless you have a job.

Technical university is a public research university
Tips: Exams are tough here because time constraint is the main factor. As far as the courses are concerned, they offer a multi-dimensional subjects according to my degree program and also you have the freedom to choose as many subjects as semester wise. But it is wise enough to select fewer subjects in order to write and pass the exam with flying colours.

If in Germany, know German!
Tips: TUM is unarguably the best university of Germany, there is not much to think about enrolling yourself here. The faculty is well experienced and psychologically engaged with the students which creates a good learning environment. You'll get internships here but most of them would be in German language so make sure that during the time you are here keep on brushing up your German language skills. There are many job opportunities here. You can easily get a job here after graduation. There is a cultural shift that you will experience and there is not much preference to English given so make sure that you are well versed in German at least to A2 level. Also, make sure that your course is in English before applying for it.

Research oriented University with diverse culture.
Tips: The students (especially from India) learn to cook Indian food from India only because one will surely miss this. There are plenty of scholarships available, thus keep an eye over the deadline to apply for scholarships and avail it. Overall the university is vibrant with diverse cultures and students from different backgrounds.
Likes (Part time work): There are plenty of student assistant jobs on the University campus. Further, since Munich is a metropolitan city and there are many job opportunities around Munich. Moreover, there are multinational companies in and around Munich which allow students to grab English language part time job.
Dislikes (Internships): There is a dedicated website for applying for student assistant jobs. But there is no dedicated career help for the internship. Some of the internships are available only in the German language. Further, it is sometimes difficult to strike a balance between internship and academic because sometimes internships are outside Munich city.

I felt better, especially when the country brought me the permanent residence permit.
Tips: You have to be very serious on what you are doing and what you are asked to do. Focus on your studies, and be very friendly with your classmates and other students. I think this will help you understand and feel free in your stay in Munich. You can gain more experience as you work and go out for having fun with your friends.
