Financing Options

For regular Bachelor and Master Programs

We believe that everyone has the right to a good education – and this is the principle we live by here at Jacobs University. This is why we offer students a personalized financial aid package to finance their studies, consisting of scholarships and deferral options, for example. You only start repaying the deferred tuition fees once you successfully entered the job market. That way you can focus completely on your studies. We are convinced that a Jacobs’ education will form the perfect foundation for your future career – that is why we are happy to invest in you. Our financing options are automatically available to you upon admission to a study program.
