If you decide to study at the Jade University of Applied Sciences, don’t expect to find a metropolitan environment as you would in Paris, Madrid or Berlin.

However, do expect to find at any of our three campuses located in Germany’s Northwest, a supportive learning and studying atmosphere to ensure your academic success, regional cultural activities just waiting for you to discover and people who care about you and who will be there for you should you ever have the need.

The primary objective of the International Office is to facilitate an easy start for your stay at our university. Our staff on all three campuses are committed to making your stay with us a successful one, starting from helping you find student housing to setting you up with so-called ‘buddies’ – local students who act as sponsors to help you get oriented with any of the ordinary daily business as well as with any university-based activities such as getting to classes or going on any of the field trips organized for our foreign exchange students.
