Testimonials from participants
"The online admission day was enjoyable: Video interview from home, virtual tour around the campus, and chats with enrolled students from campus. This gave me first-hand insights into how campus life is like. Just a couple of hours later, I received a call and was accepted at Jacobs University with a scholarship!"

"I never knew applying to a university could be this easy! On my admission day, I had my interview, a campus tour, and my admission, all in a few hours. It was way easier than the online application, and on the admission day, I already had a part scholarship secured! I recommend the admission days to everyone that had the chance to do so."
