Preface Proof of current work situation:

All applicants should state their current work situation at the time of application and submit a letter of reference from their employer(s), ideally guaranteeing re-employment after completion of the postgraduate course. A certificate of employment from the employer(s) should state the period of employment and inform about the applicants specific function and responsibilities during that time. Applicants must submit a statement of motivation explaining why they are interested in attending a particular postgraduate course with reference to their current employment. If you have no private financial resources or cannot obtain a scholarship from your government, company or an international organisation, you may apply for a DAAD scholarship either full or partial. DAAD application forms are available from the German embassies or from the DAAD offices abroad or directly at the University or Fachhochschule.

Statement of motivation: Application formalities:

Applications via email will not be accepted.

Please note: Scholarships cannot be awarded without the official DAAD application form. Many courses, however, have their own forms, which must be submitted in addition to this (see details under course description). Applicants are requested to state whether they will be financing the desired degree course themselves or whether the course can only be taken with the assistance of a DAAD scholarship. Chances of admission to postgraduate courses will be greatly enhanced for academically qualified applicants with personal financial resources.

Applicants from the People's Republic of China are required to enclose two self-adressed address labels written in Chinese characters with their application documents.

Applications from Cameroon, Myanmar and Nigeria must be submitted via the German embassy.

Application deadlines for DAAD-scholarships:

IMPORTANT: Late applications cannot be considered!

The application deadlines at the respective universities may vary from course to course. Please check the relevant deadlines in this booklet.
