Session introduces PhD scholarships in Germany

Birzeit University’s External Academic Relations Office and The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) held an information session on PhD scholarships offered by the DAAD to study in Germany. The session was presented by the Head of DAAD in Palestine Christina Stahlbock.

Stahlbock pointed out that there are more than 140 universities and institutes in Germany that offers a doctoral degree. These higher-education institutes, according to Stahlbock, are highly recognized and authentic globally, assuring that most universities accept the thesis to be written in English.

The DAAD offers a scholarship that covers the life expenses of a student, especially that the German government covers the tuition fees for everyone; internationals and locals.

Stalbock introduced the students to the procedures, some tips and tricks that an applicant must do in order to be accepted in the scholarship. She alluded to the hardest phase in applying for a phD scholarship, which is finding the right supervisor, and therefore, the student must do a real research online or uses his connection to complete this mission.
