    Study Mathematics in Europe

    Jacobs Semesters in Mathematics offers a limited number of study-abroad opportunities for undergraduate students in pure and applied mathematics at Jacobs University, an independent private university in Germany.

    The campus of Jacobs University is located in Bremen, Germany, an old Hanseatic seaport with roots dating back more than two thousand years. Modern Bremen is a cultural and commercial center in northern Germany, and a well-connected hub to explore Europe.

    Being at Jacobs University means living and studying in an English-speaking environment within a thriving international community.

    Classes are typically small, allowing for intense and personal interaction between instructors and students. The program includes the opportunity to study the German language and to become familiar with the different facets of German culture and society.
