Ten University of Nairobi masters’ students from the department of Linguistics and Languages, drawn from various African countries who are pursuing their degrees in M.A. in German studies, are the beneficiaries of this year’s DAAD scholarships.

The Vice-Chancellor, represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic Affairs, Prof. Henry Mutoro, thanked the Federal Republic of Germany and DAAD for the continued cooperation in diverse fields.

Prof. Mutoro noted that the German studies programme has become attractive to many young African scholars. He attributed this to the thematic areas covered, and the competent teaching staff in the Department of Linguistics and Languages. The thematic areas include linguistics, literature, didactics and translation.

The Cultural Attaché, German Embassy, Mr. Uwe Koppel, congratulated the scholarship recipients and urged them to work hard in their studies. He highlighted the importance of learning a foreign language and the opportunities that come with it.

The DAAD Regional Director, Dr. Helmut Blumbach, also commended that students on their achievements and called on others to take advantage of the many opportunities presented to them. 

The University of Nairobi has been hosting the DAAD funded German Masters programme in the Department of Linguistics and Languages since 1994.
