Stipendium

DAAD Logo

Every year, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers study scholarships for international students of the master's degree course.

Welcome!

All over the world, problems of land use, damages due to natural disasters and conflicts between land users increase.

The Institute of Regional Science (IfR) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, analyses these structures and processes. Its interdisciplinary research staff develops regional and spatial planning concepts to meet these challenges. The institute's guiding principle is an active exchange of research and teaching at the interface of geo, environmental and social sciences. 

In the framework of the master’s degree course in Regional Science/Spatial Planning, the IfR offers two different four-term study programmes focussing on the special challenges of emerging and developing countries and the planning concepts based on them. It also fulfills teaching and research responsibilities of the former Institute of Urban and Spatial Planning (ISL) at the KIT.
