What attracted you to Jacobs out of all the other possibilities you were considering?

Back in 2002/2003 when I was looking for education opportunities in Europe, Jacobs (then International University Bremen) was the only place in Europe that could offer the type transdisciplinary and cross-cultural experience of its kind in English and with the financial support that I needed. Today, some of these frame conditions are available from other universities as well (English programs, financial support and incentives) but the experience of living in a campus with such a broad range of cultures and studying not for method but for the big problems of our age (e.g. mobility) remains unique

What did Jacobs do for you that you were not expecting?

Jacobs helped me discover who I was and, beyond that, let me gain confidence. I learnt patience, I learnt perspective taking, I learnt sensitivity to different perspectives.

Disclaimer
As Jacobs has adopted changes in curricula over the years, some of the study programs the alumni have been in might no longer be offered. However, the elements of interdisciplinarity, woven in with diverse perspectives to foster a holistic education, is and will always be the principle that
governs all of the study programs Jacobs offers. Alumni featured on this website may have studied different subjects, but their appreciation for Jacobs, their journey at Jacobs, and their journey beyond Jacobs stays the same.
