Welcome to the DAAD Information Center
What is DAAD?
The DAAD supports over 100,000 German and international
students und researchers around the globe each year -
making it the world's largest funding organisation of
its kind. We offer scholarship programmes throughout the
world that are generally open to all subjects, even though
there are some restrictions for certain disciplines such
as medicine. There are also subject-specific programmes.
In the scholarship database you can select the scholarships
that are offered for your group of subjects.

to study in Germany?
German is not a prerequisite if you enrol in an international
degree programme or a special post-graduate course. Some
universities do not ask for proof of German language proficiency

to inquire directly at the university of your choice about
the language requirements for incoming students.
