Jacobs Undergraduate Fees & Finances

Fees & Finances

For the incoming class of 2018 the annual undergraduate tuition for Bachelor programs is €20,000. A single bedroom, a shared bathroom for two students, standard utility costs and Internet, plus three meals a day are set at €6,000 for the nine-month academic year. If you take part in the world track program in your fifth semester and you do not live on campus, no room or board will be charged for that semester. Scholarships and financial aid packages can greatly reduce these initial costs. We advise you to consider the following options to help lower the cost to you.
Applicants of any nationality who submit a complete application via Common App will automatically be considered for a partial entrance scholarship from Jacobs University or an external scholarship (sponsored by Jacobs Alumni and various companies). Applicants interested in a scholarship are advised to apply as early as possible during the admissions cycle to increase their chances. Jacobs University’s scholarships are merit-based, taking into account your talent and academic potential without regard to your material wealth or resources.
Individualized financial aid packages, involving grants, scholarships, and tuition deferrals, make it possible for students to study at our university. Repayment plans are shaped towards one’s personal situation following graduation, taking graduate studies and placements into account.
Jacobs University offers an information service supporting students in obtaining the relevant information regarding external financing.
