The DAAD Regional Office Cairo offers regular information sessions about studying in Germany for Undergraduates (without a prior academic degree). This session is particularly useful for school students and their parents who are interested in gaining a Bachelor’s degree in Germany, but do not yet know about the specific requirements they have to meet and the steps that have to be taken. Please register for your preferred session HERE.

During the session, the DAAD Counselling Team will talk about:

  • the different higher education system in Germany
  • how to find your study programme
  • how and when to start planning (application, visa requirements)
  • if your school leaving certificate is accepted at German universities (Thanaweya Amma/IGCSE/IB/American Diploma)
  • financial aspects

After the session, you have the chance to ask questions. If you already have concrete questions about undergraduate studies in Germany, please book an appointment for our Individual Counselling instead or write an email.

If you have questions about your postgraduate opportunities in Germany (Master, PhD, Postdoc research), please register for an appointment HERE.

The Individual Counselling for Postgraduates takes place either face-to-face on the premises of the DAAD Regional Office Cairo (11 El Saleh Ayoub, Cairo-Zamalek) or online. You are free to choose which option is suitable for you. Should you choose face-to-face counselling, please bring a face mask to wear it during your counselling session.

Attendees of an online session will receive an email with a link to a digital meeting via Microsoft Teams after registering.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not book several slots at a time, since we want to give everyone a chance to receive counselling from the DAAD.

The DAAD Kairo Akademie (DKA) was established in 2011 in order to bundle, restructure and professionalize the various training activities of the DAAD Cairo office under one roof. Ever since, the DKA supports Egyptian universities and research institutions in the field of capacity building and in strengthening international cooperation by offering further training opportunities. These range from proposal writing and other academic skills to soft skills like time management and teaching in higher education institutions.

Until today, the academy has hosted over 590 Modules within 7 different thematic clusters and reached almost 11.500 diverse Egyptian students, researchers and higher education managers.  In cooperation with 33 faculties at public universities, private universities and research institutions, we can offer up to 25 modules a month, most of which take part at our partnering Egyptian universities and research institutes. Special modules with experts from Germany are complementing this rich offer. In October 2015 the DKA obtained official acknowledgement through the Supreme council of Egyptian universities (SCU).

The offer of the DKA is being published and updated at this website.

The DAAD is represented around the world through its lecturers.

In addition to language teaching at universities, they also provide valuable information on studying opportunities, scholarships and scientific exchange in general. Therefore, DAAD lecturers are often the first point of contact for students and academics interested in a stay at a higher education institution in Germany, and are thus, a valuable link between Egyptian and German universities.

You will find more information about the current lecturers and  counselling at their universities here.
