Jacobs Semesters in Mathematics

Information for Participants

Academic Program

Jacobs Semesters in Mathematics invites international undergraduate students to join Jacobs University for a study abroad program in Germany. Program participants take mathematics courses together with our Bachelor students. Furthermore, small classes allow for intense and personal interaction between instructors and students.

With undergraduate programs in Mathematics as well as Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACM), and an integrated Masters/Doctoral degree program, Mathematics is a strong pillar of academic life at Jacobs. In 2009, the Jacobs campus was home to the 50th International Mathematics Olympiad and biennially hosts the International Summer School for Students with participation of many leading international mathematicians.

Beyond their math focus, visiting students can take a broad range of courses across schools and majors. Being at Jacobs University means living and studying in an English-speaking environment within a thriving international community. Moreover, the program includes the opportunity to study the German language and to take classes on German politics and culture.
