Foundation Year

Design your Study Path


Planning and preparing for your academic future is an important step. Join Jacobs University’s Foundation Year Program to get a taste of different fields of study and to acquire academic learning skills before starting your degree. Over two semesters, the intensive pre-degree program prepares you for the challenge of studying at an international university. All students who successfully complete the program receive guaranteed admission to Jacobs University’s undergraduate programs. Based on your individual academic background, your needs, and goals, you can design your own Foundation Year learning experience. After placement tests and consultation with your academic advisor, you can choose between a number of different preparatory and orientation classes. Foundation Year students may furthermore attend regular undergraduate courses and are able to obtain transferable ECTS credits. Another important part is the development and training of personal skills such as presentation & communication or time and stress management. The language of instruction is English.
