German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)

The London Office of the DAAD was first established in 1927 and re-opened in 1952. Our main concern is the provision and administration of DAAD scholarship programmes for the United Kingdom and Ireland, providing information about German institutions of higher education, the recruitment of DAAD Lecturers for British and Irish universities and the distribution of publications on study and research and scholarship opportunities in Germany. The DAAD London Office is also the point of contact for German DAAD scholarship holders in the UK and Ireland.
