DAAD Kairo Akademie (DKA)

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.

Till date, 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 under the following website


DAAD-Lecturers - Counselling at Egyptian Universities

DAAD is represented around the world through its lecturers-programme, regional offices and information centers.

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.
