1) Who can take part in TutoRIA events?

All LMU students may join in with our events, whether you are a native german student, a programme or Erasmus student, or even if you have already graduated.
Friends/spouses/siblings may only participate if they are also registered with the LMU.
Unfortunately staff members from the LMU cannot join.

2) Why can only LMU students take part?

This is a condition instated by the German Academy Exchange Office (DAAD), who finances part of our programme, and therefore we must abide by it.

3) I am an Erasmus intern. May I still take part?

Only if you are matriculated with the LMU and can display a valid LMU student ID.

4) What do I need to register?

In order to register you will need:

  • Your student ID
  • The event fee in cash

Please note! : Registration is binding. No refund will be offered (see number 7).

Places are allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Whoever signs up first - and pays - is registered. We regret that we cannot offer a reservation policy (see number 9).

5) I cannot attend your office hours. What should I do?

If you are unable to come yourself, a friend may register for you. He/she must show us your LMU student card and provide your contact details (mobile phone number or e-mail address).

6) I can’t attend an event. What should I do now?

Unfortunately if you are unable to take part in an event – for whichever reason – we cannot provide you with a refund.

However you do have the opportunity to search for a person who could take your place yourself. This person must also study at the LMU and be able to show us their student ID, as well as a photographic form of ID, at the beginning of the event.

Often the demand for our events is very high.

You may use our facebook group (TutoRIA) to find your replacement.
If you have found a replacement, please inform us as soon as possible. Simply e-mail us at E-Mail (tutor.international@lmu.de)
We would also like to emphasise that in this situation you would be personally responsible for the payment of the event by the person who is replacing you.

7) Is there a waiting list for fully-booked events?

Once an event is fully-booked we would recommend that you post a comment on our facebook group, stating that you would like to take part. If a person who has already registered decides not to participate, you can then contact them immediately.

8) Can I reserve places in advance?

Unfortunately no, as that would be unfair. Registration is only possible with immediate payment at the TutoRIA office.

9) I am insured on trips?

All participants are wholly responsible for themselves. The tutors are liable for neither personal (health-related) nor material damage.

The so-called ‘suspension of liability’ form must be signed by every participant at the beginning of each event/trip.

Note: Accidents that occur whilst travelling will be undertaken by the citizens’ advice bureau.

10) Do TutoRIA events only happen in German?

Our events are held both in German and English. That means that all the reading materials and tours/city tours are in both languages German.

11) Could you also help me with any visa or insurance problems and finding accommodation or German language courses?

No. For assistance with such problems we recommend that you make contact with professional consultation facilities in Munich, like the Studentenwerk.

12) How do you become a tutor with TutoRIA?

When tutor positions become available, the vacancies are advertised as a public notice on the LMU-Website. Naturally the position is also advertised on our Facebook pag.
