Dear Friends, Partners and Alumni, Here it is – the latest edition of your DAAD Cairo Newsletter. The Academic Year is drawing to a close, two very interesting and truly turbulent semesters lie behind us. What direction the country is taking is not clear, yet – after the election(s) later in the year we probably know more. However, one thing is sure: our work, the necessity of international collaboration in Higher Education is more important than ever. The German government has offered Egypt a „Transformation partnership“ on the way to a more democratic society. This will mean more intense collaboration, more summer schools, more partnerships and also more scholarships. Amongst other things, we will multiply the number of grants for our programme “Public Policy and Good Governance” (see inside). We hope very much that we can contribute a tiny little bit to the success of the democratic revolution. Some of the offers you will find in this issue, some more will follow in the next edition of our newsletter. For the moment I should like to wish everybody an enjoyable, peaceful and relaxing summer. The DAAD Cairo office will close during the month of August and will reopen after the feast. Very best wishes, Dr. Michael Harms Director DAAD Cairo Office

All master courses follow an interdisciplinary approach and are designed for yearly intakes of 10 Arab and 10 German participants; respective scholarships are provided by DAAD. Self-paying participants may apply. Apart from their specialization, these master courses concentrate on intercultural competences, on practical training and eventually forming networks among specialists from the MENA countries and Germany. In principle, the first semester is spent at the Arab university and the second one at the German university; the final two semesters are reserved for internships and writing of the master thesis. While IWRM, REMENA and ECAR require full attendance, INEMA is designed as a blended learning course with only two weeks presence phases per semester in Ludwigsburg and Helwan respectively. A fifth bi-cultural master course in the field of green architecture, Integrated Urbanism and Sustainable Development, IUSD, conducted by the Universities of Ain Shams and Stuttgart, will start its first intake in Germany in October. It is co-financed by the Egyptian Ministry for Higher Education and Scientific Research and will be taught in Stuttgart for the first two semesters, then continue with two semesters of practice-related training at Ain Shams.

In this role she supports and guides new German schools or school initiatives on their way to reach German educational goals such as the German Language Diploma (DSD), the German International Abitur (DIAP) or the German International Baccalaureate (GIB). A very important part of job is to visit schools on a regular basis and talk to school representatives such as students, parents, teachers, principals and boards. Her position also demands relating all German Schools in Egypt in order to discuss and decide matters from school structure or organization all the way to nursery programs and numbers of tests.

Information brochure about Studying in Germany for parents to be published in Arabic Up until now, the broschure “Study in Germany: A good choice for your child. 15 Questions and Answers for parents” has only been available in German and English. An Arabic version is to come out soon; it will offer a diversity of information about advantages, opportunities and chances of studies at a German University. In addition parents can get an idea about the costs, necessary preparations and living conditions that are related to a stay abroad and may find answers to a couple of questions parents naturally would worry about when sending their child to another country. In order to reach more parents of prospective students in the Arab World, DAAD Cairo initiated the brochure’s translation into Arabic. The so far international oriented brochure will be adjusted to the region by replacing the previous testimonials by ones of Egyptians who used to or are currently studying in Germany and are speaking from their own experience. Parents like Mona El Tobgui, Senior Advisor of the Fraunhofer-Foundation, whose son and daughter both studied in Germany explain why they supported their children on this way. The brochure is expected to be available in autumn.
