DAAD Nairobi

After almost one and a half years of vacancy, the DAAD Lectorate/Lectorship Uganda is finally occupied again. Since mid-September 2021, there has been a successor for Steven Heimlich: Ms. Rebekka Junker has arrived in Kampala with her family and has taken over the lectorate duties in the German Department at the University of Makerere.

Rebekka Junker holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Freiburg and a Master’s degree in “German as a Foreign Language in the German-African Context” from the University of Leipzig and University of Stellenbosch. She taught “German as a Foreign Language” at the Goethe Institute Yaounde for six months and then worked as a DAAD language assistant in Winneba for one and a half years. After four and a half years in Freiburg, she is now moving back to the African continent with her family.

As a DAAD Lecturer, she provides information on studying and researching in Germany in Uganda and carries out other related activities in cooperation with the DAAD Regional Office in Nairobi and the Network German in Uganda.
