Admission Days are your opportunity to go through the application fast-track to start your studies at Germany’s most international university in Fall 2022. Jacobs University offers top-ranked English-language programs to prepare you for career success in our global world. On your Admission Day, you will have a personal interview and then receive your admission decision and academic-achievement scholarship offered on the same day!
➜ To be eligible for Admission Days, you must have graduated from high school (or will graduate in 2022) in a European country AND have a high school diploma equivalent to the German general higher education entry qualification (also known as “Abitur”). Some students may be eligible for major-specific admissions with A-Levels or an IB Diploma.
Online or on-campus – the choice is yours!
Due to the pandemic, applicants can have an in-person admission interview on our campus in Bremen, Germany, or an online admission interview to minimize personal contact and travel. Whether online or on-campus, your advantages remain the same.

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!"
Hauke, studies Global Economics & Management, participant in our admission days 2020
"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."
