This website provides extensive information for students and researchers who are interested in going to Germany in order to study or do research. Germany has one of the best education systems in the world and a qualification gained in Germany will surely boost your career. Furthermore, German universities do not expect a study fee, which means that studying is free.

DAAD also offers In-Country scholarships for South Africans to study in South Africa, and  In-Region Programs for students from Sub-Saharan Africa to study in South Africa.

We hope this website will assist you in finding all the information you need, such as information on the higher education system in Germany, various degree programmes at German universities, scholarship opportunities through DAAD, Alumni experiences, as well as events organised by DAAD South Africa all over the country.

This website also provides information for German students and researchers about South Africa.
