DAAD is offering foreign students the opportunity to study in Germany. These scholarships are geared towards providing foreign applicants from the field of Fine Art, Design, Film, Music and Architecture as well as Drama, Direction, Dance and Choreography with an opportunity to complete a course of extension studies, without gaining a formal degree of qualification, at a German state (public) or state-recognized institution of higher education.
As a rule, scholarships for attendance of a course of extension studies are awarded to applicants who have exhausted the training possibilities available to them in their home country and have – as far as possible – concluded these studies with an appropriate degree. No more than six years should generally have passed between the time they gained their degree and the time of this application.
Applicants who have been residents in Germany for longer than one year at the time of application cannot be considered.
