Information on qualification and scholarship programmes

The ASA Programme 

The ASA Programme (Work and Study Stays) is a development policy learning and qualification programme for young people who want to work for a fairer world and understand global interrelationships. It promotes international learning communities and engagement in the spirit of the United Nations' Agenda 2030.

DAAD : Language and Practice in China or Japan

The aim of the programme is to offer German graduates (with at least a completed Bachelor's degree in the fields of natural sciences, engineering, law, political science, economics or architecture) the opportunity to participate in a language and practice-oriented programme in China or Japan.

The DAAD would particularly like to encourage interested applicants with little or no experience of China/Japan to submit an application. This scholarship is generally valid for a period of about 16 months (preparatory course in Germany, language course and internship in China/Japan).

Further information for language and practice in China can be found here (german), for language and practice in Japan here.​

China Scholarship Programme

The China Fellowship Programme is aimed at students of non-sinological subjects with a substantial interest in the People's Republic of China and offers them the opportunity to acquire in-depth knowledge of the Chinese language and society as well as the university and academic landscape during a one-year stay in China.
