The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is an organization that promotes the international exchange of students and scientists. It is, in fact, the world’s largest organization as concerns financing scientific mobility. As an association of German universities, DAAD represents 231 German universities and higher education institutions, with over 500 representatives in nearly 100 countries.

In Kenya, DAAD is represented by a Regional Office in Nairobi as well as a lecturer each at the University of Nairobi and Kenyatta University.

We are pleased to inform you that the DAAD Nairobi Office has now resumed its face to face consultations,  happening every Wednesdays, 10 am to 12 pm EAT.

Please note also, that  the regular visiting hours remain; every Thursdays from 10:00 am to 11:00 am EAT,  Web Seminars also remain as scheduled.

We have introduced a series of online seminars that inform about study and research in Germany, funding opportunities, learning German and other topics related to DAAD programmes. Our online seminars are live and interactive sessions that give us the opportunity to come together virtually, share information and discuss questions immediately – all from the safety of our homes.

You will be guided by our moderator from the DAAD Office Nairobi. The online seminar addresses all participants from the East African region and is free of charge.

Please see the schedule for more information and feel free to register for participation: www.daad.or.ke/en/online-seminar-schedule/.
