MUZAFFARABAD: A visiting German academician has urged Kashmiri students to avail themselves of a wonderful academic life in Germany by tapping scholarship opportunities, particularly those offered by the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD).

In an interactive session with students at the University of Poonch (UoP) Rawalakot, Prof Peter Joseph Boeck, renowned for his expertise in economics and business education, elaborated on the process of direct admissions, which, he said, facilitated access for international students to German universities.

This process simplifies the pathway for students from Azad Kashmir and other regions to pursue higher education in Germany, he said.

In response, both the students and faculty expressed gratitude to Prof Boeck for his engagement and guidance.

“I am grateful to you for your discourse on the students’ understanding of European culture and teaching methodologies,” UoP Vice-Chancellor Dr Mohammad Zakaria Zakir said on the occasion.

He announced plans for future workshops to further enhance cultural understanding and academic collaboration.

Prof Zakir said the UoP was not only nurturing a generation of globally aware healthcare professionals but also fostering a community that celebrated diversity and embraced the richness of different cultures.
