German language and literature studies in Egypt have a long tradition and enjoy an excellent reputation. As a result, the German-Egyptian cooperation in this field is very fruitful: currently, four German language lecturers and four language assistants from Germany work at Egyptian universities. Two DAAD supported Master’s programmes are offered at Ain Shams University in cooperation with University of Leipzig. In these programmes, students are taught in the fields of German as a foreign language (DaF) and special translation. Furthermore, with the “Hochschulsommerkursstipendien” (University Summer Courses Scholarships) each year the DAAD offers a study visit in Germany for several weeks to 40 to 50 Egyptian Bachelor’s students.
