Duration: 1 – 14 December 2013


In co-operation with the ASKO Europa Stiftung (AES) and other renowned partners in Germany and Australia, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is offering scholarships for a two-week course dealing with a variety of issues regarding the European Union. Two weeks full of exciting opportunities for students – from the fields of law, politics, international relations, European studies or similar subjects – wanting to improve their understanding of contemporary European affairs and legislative regulations, organised by the European Academy Otzenhausen, the University of New England and the DAAD.

The course is open to advanced undergraduates and graduates enrolled at an Australian or New Zealand university.

The course will be held in English. The programme consists of a course on European affairs as well as study trips to Trier (Roman city, university), Luxembourg (European Court of Justice, city), Strasbourg (European Parliament, European Court of Human Rights, city with Christmas market), and Germany’s former capital, Bonn (visiting the DAAD).

Students will be expected to:

  • pay a course fee contribution of EUR 100, to be paid on arrival by each participant
  • organise and pay for their own transport to Germany and back. Successful applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for other funding to cover these costs. In case no other funding (or only less) is available, the DAAD will pay a travel allowance of EUR 370 per person (an increase in the travel allowance is currently being negotiated) to be paid out on arrival.
  • organise and pay for their own medical insurance
  • bring along whatever pocket money they might need

The remaining costs of the programme, accommodation at the European Academy Otzenhausen (, all meals and all excursions are paid for by the ASKO Europe Foundation, the Centre International de Formation Européenne (CIFE) and the DAAD. Transfers from and to Frankfurt Airport will be organised.
