Study at Jacobs University and discover Europe
Visiting and exchange students have the chance to discover fascinating cities like Berlin, Brussels, Geneva and St. Petersburg as part of their Jacobs curriculum.
When you come to Jacobs as an incoming student, you can choose from one of our customizable study tracks Health Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Computer Science and Biotechnology.
Visiting and exchange students get guaranteed access to a choice of courses from our own course catalog and take tailor-made social science electives that have been created to complement the major related subjects. Any remaining credits required can be made up with the regular course catalog.
Alongside each of the tracks are specially designed excursions around Europe where students have the chance to visit renowned research sights such as the Red Cross and CERN in Geneva, the Charité in Berlin or the European Parliament in Brussels to support the classroom learning.
Each track offers an academic advisor who is also a Study Track Chair, having worked with the International Programs Office to curate the study track programs.
If you don’t think one of the tracks works for you, that’s not a problem! We would work with you specifically to design your own program from the regular Jacobs courses.
"Jacobs truly represents a diverse and dynamic community where students from all over the globe are able to share a bit of their culture and also learn about others. This semester, I have been lucky enough to engage in this process of sharing, listening, and growing with some amazing students who I can now call friends. Its been a great experience!"
