Postgraduate Studies in the Field of the Performing Arts

DAAD scholarships offer graduates the opportunity to continue their education in Germany with a postgraduate or continuing course of study. The scholarships also promote the exchange of experience and networking amongst colleagues.

Duration of the funding

Postgraduate study programmes leading to a final qualification:

  • Between 10 and 24 months depending on the length of the chosen study programme or project
  • Start: usually from 1st October, or earlier if a language course is taken prior to the study programme
  • The scholarships are awarded for the duration of the standard period of study for the chosen study programme (up to a maximum of 24 months). To receive further funding after the first year of study for 2-year courses, proof of academic achievements thus far should indicate that the study programme can be successfully completed within the standard period of study.
  • Applicants who are already in Germany in the first year of a postgraduate course at the time of application may apply for funding for their second year of study. In this case, it is not possible to extend the scholarship.

  • Start: usually from 1st October, or earlier if a language course is taken prior to the study programme
