Since 2012, Department of German Studies has a MoU with the University of Osnabrueck, Germany. For academic collaboration there is a university level MoU with the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi as well. Institutions like the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), Goethe Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan, Austrian Cultural Forum, Pro Helvetia etc. also collaborate and contribute distinctly towards academic pursuits of the Department.
Students take part in an annual essay writing competition organized by the DAAD and several of them have got an opportunity to visit Germany for one month long university summer course with the help of a DAAD-Scholarship. Several students taught in the Kendriya Vidyalaya and some of them are teaching in a few prestigious schools in and around Dehradun. A good number of our students have found placement in MNCs like Amazon, Oracle, and Wipro etc.
