We organize Information events – both online and on site at your institution in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Our services are free of charge.

We happily arrange an event for your organisation – online or anywhere in Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania – regardless if you work for a school, a university, a company, a political institution, an NGO or another institution. Individual preferences on topics are always possible – our visit may be a lecture, a participation in a discussion, a personal conversation with a small group or take any other form.

Additionally, we are happy to participate in career consultation, “International Days”, “Study Abroad” fairs or similar events at your institution.

In addition, we understand ourselves as a nexus for the work of German Philologists and other German-related academic activities in North Eastern Europe.

Our events can be held in German, English or Latvian or a mix of these languages. Events with elements in Estonian, Lithuanian or Russian are possible on prior arrangement.

Even though we are open to individual arrangements, we suggest the following standard events for visiting your institution:

  • “Classic” information lectures: A presentation on studying and research opportunities in Germany, as well as on scholarships (the focus may shift between studying and research depending on the audience).
  • A life with the German language from kindergarten to a research scholarship: Opportunities of proficiency in German (suited for e.g. teenagers and parents of smaller children).
  • The German language in the world and in the Baltic region – important in history, but still an important language today.
  • Scholarship application workshops for students and / or researchers.
  • Quizzes and games – the German language and Germany: Closer than you think! Suited for teenagers. The event may include a practical “linguistic landscape” investigation of the presence of the German language in the neighbourhood of your organisation.
  • German for children – a playful look at a language not quite as foreign as children may think, and at things related to it.

Local Cooperations
