DAAD Information Centre Accra

The Information Centre organises a monthly introductory session on study and research opportunities in Germany. Every first Thursday of the month our team presents the most relevant information in a seminar-style format followed by a question and answer secession and individual consultation.

In addition to that, the IC Accra also organises symposia on various university campuses around the country. As a special service, the DAAD country director is available to give presentations on study and research opportunities in Germany upon invitation by a student or professional organisation.

Self-funded students are encouraged to seek advice from the Information Centre before the student visa interview.

For visits during consultation hours, kindly book for an appointment. If you wish to arrange an appointment outside regular office hours please send us an email to info@daad-ghana.org.

All services of the Information Centre are provided free of charge.
