Ja, out of 1431 applicants, about 130 were admitted and 104 accepted the admission. About 80 have enrolled and resumed, expecting 24 more to resume. All will work out just fine for you. Have a safe trip to Munich!

Congrats @Lobito,MSPE class TUM WS'16 earnestly await your arrival. You needed to see how the whole class was staring at me while introducing myself during orientation today. I was the only African present.
I pray Nigeria's economy gets better. Six Nigerians and One Burkinababe (7 Africans out of 104 admits) were admitted for the course. Unfortunately, I have only seen myself and much later, the Burkinababe entered the hall (glad Lobito is joining soon). Largely, this is due to the present forex crisis in Nigeria.
Nigeria shall rise again. Amen!!!

Genau, just as posters above me have explained. Nonetheless, if you have enrollment deadline to beat, you can emphasize that in a short letter.

Hello bro, I understand the situation with forex and pray you get it done soon. If there is any way, I can be of help, please do not hesitate to ask.
See you in Munich soon!!!

I arrived in Munich two days ago and it has been a wonderful experience right from departure in Nigeria till date.
- No embarrassment of any kind so far
- Was the only black on-board while connecting Munich from Abu Dhabi. Most Africans I have seen (though few) smile when you meet and some natives have been so friendly.
- Cost of accommodation here is expensive (heard there are very few&cheap student dorms within the city but hardly available) and difficult to get but God dey.
-Transportation system is superb. My best so far is U-bahn.
- Time runs fast in Germany (my personal observation).
... and many more
In all, thanks to every member of this thread. I pray all prospective students will enjoy immense favour.
P.S: This is not my last post here. As much as I can, I will try to help others here. Danke schoen!

Thanks. I did not write any but heard some pple wrote test during their interview.

1. Got the envelope at DHL office @ #4,120.00 Told them I need prepared courier envelope for Visa processing from German embassy Lagos. They know about it and also have the embassy's address on their system.
Reason for the high cost is likely cos the delivery address is another state outside Lagos.
2. I did not write it during or before the interview but was prepared for it, in case.

@weirdarkhitekt, Thank you! My paper docs got to TUM late Feb.
@Tesland, Lobito007 & Hadassaheke, thank you!
@Barleh, I did Skype interview (2nd stage) on 2nd of May. Got success mail few hours later. My application experience:
1st step: Online application (after thoroughly surfing the school's website).
2nd step: Sent all required paper docs (for admission) except Health insurance which was required for enrollment (I will send that later).
3rd Step: Got a notification that my docs have been received. Prayed and hoped for the best.
4th Step: Got an interview invitation but I rescheduled to an earlier date (rescheduling is allowed as stated in the invitation).
5th Step: 30mins interview. 3-man panel (one male lecturer, a woman and an observer). The interview questions covered my motivation for applying for MSC programme, why TUM, other schools in Germany that I applied to, my CV, my present job, funding, my undergraduate specialization/ courses and some technical questions on power plant, power generation, transmission and distribution. I was UNABLE to answer ALL questions correctly but gave technical ideas on those I don't know. Finally, I asked some general questions about life in Munich, the study and when to expect result of the interview. In a nut shell, it was God's grace.
N.B: On MSPE website, there is information about the general areas to focus on (motivation, technical questions, CV etc.) for the interview with their allotted grades.
6th Step: Got a success mail from the President of TUM (similar to Vice Chancellor in Nigeria), accepted the offer officially on TUMonline and downloaded the admission letter.
7th Step (loading...) : Visa application and Resumption, by God's grace.
Hope the summary helps. See you!
