  • Bachelor students must have completed at least two academic years at the start of the scholarship period.
  • Neither graduates holding a Master's degree nor PhD students are eligible for this programme.
What can be funded?
  • The programme funds attendance of language and area studies courses as well as special language / terminology courses that are offered by state or state-recognised German universities and by affiliated language schools. You can find information on the courses under www.daad.de/hsk-kursliste
  • The courses are taught exclusively in German.

Duration of the funding
  • The courses run for at least 18 teaching days (max. 5 days/week, excluding days of arrival and departure) with a minimum of 25 hours of teaching a week.
  • The grants are non-renewable.
  • The courses usually take place in the period from June to December.

  • Payment of a country-specific travel allowance (exception: Western Europe), see: travel allowance)
  • Payments towards health, accident and personal liability insurance cover
