With the aim of providing information for studying, researching and respective funding opportunities in Germany, the DAAD Information Centre Ankara was founded in 2000. Last year, about 3,000 students and prospective students reached our information center by e-mail or telephone, or visited us personally to find out more about higher education in Germany.

With the awareness of the responsibility related to such an essential subject area we always try to offer our information and advices on a multifaceted basis, taking current developments in Germany into account.
