Jacobs University is definitely one of the most international universities you can find, we have students from all over the world. It is highly interesting for me to interact with students with different cultural backgrounds and share some of my cultures with them. As a psychology student who’s intrigued by social and cultural psychology, Jacobs is sure a great place to be. All lectures, except the German language courses, are taught in English and all of my professors are approachable and helpful.View more
My experience at Jacobs started in 2019, with one semester of normality before COVID hit. For that one semester, I had very few issues, the staff were helpful, my classes were interesting and the professors were engaging. Since COVID, however, the course content has decreased drastically, the organization of the University has become incredibly messy, and the food (that we are forced to eat unless we have multiple doctors’ notes) is absolutely horrid. It is rare that any staff member (organizational, not professors) replies to my emails within 2 weeks, and the information sent out to students is very confusing. The university even kicked all of the incoming 3rd-year students off of campus with one month’s notice in order to make room for a larger incoming freshman class. One thing I really enjoyed throughout my years at Jacobs have been the student body, the international aspect is really cool and you meet a lot of different kinds of people. I think that if the administration was more organized my rating would be higher, but the way that they treat the students has lowered my rating significantly. As far as professors go, it is really hit or miss. I’ve had some brilliant professors with very enlightening classes as well as some professors who would show up to class late and talk in circles. I do believe that studying at this university throughout the COVID pandemic has had an impact on the quality of the education and my experience there, as I think it has with every university. I am hopeful that once things go back to normal, the quality will increase.View more
If you think you are an open-minded, independent, academically integrated but also willing in engage in remarkable social activities, Jacobs University is indeed where you belong.
The university is well-known for its internationality within an English-speaking campus. However, what is less known is the community that it builds up. With students from over 100 nations, I learned one thing that no professors can teach: empathy and understanding. It completely transformed me as a person.
There are about 10 or more active student clubs/organizations/events so there are a lot of choices for you to participate in on-campus activities.
Speaking of the quality of professors, most of my professors (my major is International Business Administration, I cannot speak for the professors of the whole school) have pretty much practical experiences beside teaching, so most of them are equipped with real life knowledge, which is much more than what is the the books. However, it would be difficult in preparing for the exams if you do not study by yourself after the lectures because the amount of information covered by the professors’ lectures usually contain a lot of information that will not appear on the exams.
The library is amazing. The space with glass windows and the enormous bookshelves make it heaven to those who enjoy spending their time in the library.
The minus point is that unlike other universities in Germany, its tuition and other fees are pretty high (€26000/yearfor everything).View more
– Academic quality is very specific to the majors and differs across them
– Very international student body and a tightly knit community is fostered
-It is in the Bremen-Nord and (in a way) the only English speaking university in the place so sometimes Jacobs can feel like a bubble.
The university provides you with whatever an American system can offer – transdisciplinary courses throughout your 3 years embedded with the American Liberal Arts mandatory language module combination. Side by side with an intense standard European Education system compliant 3 year program.View more
