How do I register or get a DAAD ID?

Open the homepage and click on Register now.

Step 1: Verify your email address

Enter a valid email address to which you have access. Please note that you will not be able to change this email address afterwards.

Step 2: Complete your profile

Fill out the additional information on your profile (password, title, first name, surname, preferred language) and confirm that you have read our Data Privacy Statement. Then click Continue to set up your account.

I already have a login for the DAAD portal. Do I have to register again?

No. Your existing portal access data can be used as your DAAD ID with immediate effect. Simply log in with your email address and password. The previous additional option to login via an individual username is not available anymore. You may however login using the email address you registered with when you initially created your account.
