The team of the DAAD office branch Cairo is looking forward to your visit

The DAAD office branch Cairo is located on the Nile island Zamalek in the heart of Cairo. Since 1960, the German Academic Exchange Service has a branch in Egypt and thus offers its services there since 55 years. Not only Students, Researchers and Scientists profit from its advisory and consultant services, but also cultural interested travelers and locals often drop by.

The Cairo branch offers consultation on scholarships and funding possibilities and also holds various cultural activities and events, such as lectures and conferences. Whatever concerns you, a scholarship, an interesting lecture or just general information about life in Egypt.

Taking a look into the office is always worthwhile!
