Syrian student awarded German DAAD prize out of 400 nominations

Germany, SANA – A Syrian student has been awarded the prize of the German Academic Exchange service (DAAD) for excellent foreign students studying at German universities.

Khaldoun Hmeisheh, who holds a PhD in marine engineering (shipbuilding), won over the other 400 nominees who are from various countries around the world.

Hmeisheh, 32, has been pursuing his studies in Germany after he was dispatched by Tishreen University in Lattakia in 2009.

Hmeisheh was contacted by SANA to talk about the prize, which he said is given annually to an international student in recognition of outstanding academic achievements on the level of the German universities.

Part of the prize, he told SANA reporter, focused on academic achievements and degrees, while the other part focuses on volunteer activities carried out by the student in service of foreign students in study, work or social fields.

The award was handed by Prof. Wolfgang Schareck, Rector of the University of Rostock, at which Hmeisheh is studying.
