The new homepage of the German Association of Postgraduate Programmes with Special Relevance to Developing Countries (AGEP) is online. (www.agep-info.de) Prospective and current students from around the world will find all relevant information about the AGEP postgraduate courses, their common events and about living and studying in Germany in a clearly structured and easy to use way. Furthermore the AGEP homepage offers you access to the AGEP group in the Alumniportal Deutschland, the largest online platform for international cooperation. In there, students and alumni from the AGEP programmes have the chance to connect themselves and discuss specialist matters with experts from around the world.
The new website agep-info.de of the German Association of Postgraduate Programmes with Special Relevance to Developing Countries (AGEP) provides among other things a comprehensive list of Master’s and PhD programmes offered at German universities in development-related areas, many of which are funded by the DAAD.
AGEP, an umbrella organization of development-related postgraduate study programmes in Germany, hopes to establish itself as the central point of contact for young professionals from developing and threshold countries. Its new website is the first step in this direction.
“Our goal is to present Germany as an attractive place to study to rising professionals from the developing world,” says Network Coordinator Robin Pass, who created the website. “The site is designed to give them all the information they need to get started.” The website provides information about the programmes as well as useful information on how to apply and about living in Germany.
www.agep-info.de is also a great resource for both current and past students of the development-related postgraduate courses programme. Students and alumni alike can access information regarding events and get in touch with the AGEP group on the Alumniportal Deutschland, the place to go for networking and engaging with other experts.
