We are a small university; everyone knows everyone; everyone is welcome regardless of their cultural background. You can find a variety of different cultures on campus, all of which treat each other with respect and curiosity. Jacobs really is a great place to pursue your studies. It provides you with multiple opportunities.
My specific program cannot be found anywhere else; I have been particularly taken back by the interdisciplinary approach. For, only if you approach an issue from multiple perspectives you can really grasp it. The classes are very small, the contact to our professors is very close. If you have any questions, you can immediately raise them with your professors. This is great and rather extraordinary for a German university.
I have always been fascinated by physics, there are so many interesting things to discover. The laboratory facilities are impressive; things we discuss in class can be tested and put into practice. And since my second semester, I have been actively involved in research; this has been another great experience.
A degree from Jacobs University opens doors to many different opportunities and really prepares us well for our future. The fact that I am studying in English was also important to me, because I can choose to go to any English-speaking institution in the world.
