Additional Information

Jacobs University is founded on the principle that everyone has the right to a good education. 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.

Visit us

The best way to get to know Jacobs university is to visit our beautiful campus, located a short train ride away from central Bremen. We offer both individual and group campus tours, 13:00 - 15:00 hrs., Monday to Friday throughout the year except for public holidays and the winter break.

Sharing your everyday life with people coming from different parts of the world gave me more than just a classroom experience. This was thanks to the (truly) international environment Jacobs offered, which has been by far the most enriching one in my life.
