New Zealand-German academic exchange programme

Under a new bilateral exchange arrangement, Education New Zealand supports early-career researchers from New Zealand to collaborate on research projects in Germany.

Education New Zealand and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) signed a Programmes for Project-Related Personal Exchange (PPP) arrangement in November 2021. Education New Zealand will contribute funding to support early-career academics from New Zealand universities and Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology to travel to Germany. 

The PPP programme aims to strengthen academic relations between New Zealand and German institutions and to promote cooperative and complementary research activities. It enables young academics involved in the project to further their careers and expand international research links. 

The programme covers all subject areas and is open to students who are close to completing their doctorate and to academics who completed a doctorate within the last five years from the date of application.
