    Well... yes (other than a semester fee which is small) except for universities in the state of Baden Württemberg where tuition is now necessary for Non-EU international students. Though there are other things to consider such as whether you have a required level of German, because if I recall correctly... TUM doesn't have an English language course.

    For the September 2019 intake, applications period hasn't even started yet. It will commence in Spring 2019.

    Will I stand a chance with AAAA a level predicted grades (AS:ABBB) considering I don't do much outside of academics? Im pretty sure it must be very competitive.

    If you apply in 2019 won't you have finished A levels by then?

    No you haven't (Deadline is in July I believe) but German universities generally require students to have results on hand before applying; however you could contact TUM's international office and ask about applying with predicted scores... since you took AS exams; it may be possible to submit the application with your AS scores and predicteds then submit the results when you get them in August.

    Never heard about applicants being disadvantaged by submitting later as long as it is before the deadline. Do you have a required level of German already? TestDaf C1.

    No problem Good luck! Quote me please if TUM allows you to submit your application with predicteds... because I've only heard about people doing this and most people I know apply post results.

    TUM only has one course offered in English which is BSc Management and Technology: http://www.eunicas.co.uk/index.php/e...ogy-1560.html: I suppose this is the course you are looking to apply to? Otherwise your lack of German proficiency may be an issue

    Thank you

    Well :erm: definitely not a small issue; you would need to gain C1 proficiency (Near fluent) before applying or at the very least B1/B2 :/ so probably not possible

    Also look at Ireland, not free but cheap (although living in Dublin specifically can be pricey).

    e.g.
    https://www.nuigalway.ie/engineering...alengineering/
    http://www.ucd.ie/biomedicalengineer...te-programmes/
