These two databases contain basically ALL study programmes available in Germany and not only those with

(Application is usually beginning of December).

Kindly note that DAAD does not offer any scholarships for bachelor programmes, but further information can be
found via these databases: or
Please also bear in mind that there are no general tuition fees in Germany which means that Germany is not only
one of the most sought after study destinations in the world but at the same time one of the cheapest ones in
terms of tuition fees and living expenses. Even without a scholarship it is therefore feasible for many students
from abroad to self-fund their stay.
