Once again the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service, a German government organisation) is offering scholarships for a “Hochschulwinterkurs”, a six-week course on German language, culture and society open to all Australian and New Zealand undergraduates, graduates and junior faculty members, except graduates involved in German and German faculty courses.
Applications from advanced students of all subjects will be accepted, provided they have completed at least two years of university education at the beginning of the Winterkurs. Graduates and PhD students may also apply, except graduates involved in German and German faculty courses. Applicants must have an Australian or New Zealand passport and must be enrolled at an Australian or New Zealand university. Applicants must prove a sound knowledge of German in order to be able to follow lectures and work in study groups. By January 2013, they must have completed at least 2 years of German (not necessarily at university) and gained language skills at the European level B1, preferably B2.
