The DAAD Information Centre in Rome was founded in 2004. One of its main responsibilities is to provide information and individual advice on the German higher education system and the various DAAD study and research scholarships.

Aided by a dense local network, useful web tools and a newsletter, the Information Centre performs marketing activities for German higher education institutions. It also participates in education fairs and events at schools and universities in order to present information on studying and conducting research in Germany. Maintaining long-term ties with DAAD alumni is a further important responsibility of the DAAD Information Centre in Rome.

Our Team

Our team at the DAAD Information Centre in Rome will be pleased to assist you and provide you with any information you require regarding the German higher education landscape, choosing the right degree programme at the right higher education institution, and our DAAD scholarships.
