Would you like to study at our university for a semester?

Welcome! Each semester we welcome students to our faculty from our 18 partner faculties.

You can sign up for courses from our Bachelor or Master Degree. Most of the courses are taught in German. However, each semester we offer some design projects english taught . In the summer, a preparatory German course is held, regularly in Wilhelmshaven. During the semester, the Jade University of Applied Sciences offers free German courses. For more questions concerning the Language courses as well as applications and deadlines please contact your contact partner Anneke Freudenthal at the International Office (Contact).

You can find a check-list for a semester at Jade HS here.

Information on financing your stay abroad can be found here.

In order to study at the Jade University, we recommend having at least a German language level of B1. However, if you just speak English (at least B2) and, until the beginning of your studies here, you prove a German language level of A2, you will be accepted as an exchange student. You are not required to submit an exam. But since only a few courses are offered in English, it is vital that you have a sufficient level of German skills.

LIGHT AND THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
Scott Pollock
4 CP ECTS
Scheduled for Mondays 15:45-19:00 hs
We will deal with the exterior and interior application of light in planned environments. The aim of the course is to investigate the integration of natural and artificial lighting when developing projects. Whether at a regional level, an urban level, in localities, in squares, in buildings or in rooms, we will pursue answers regarding a deliberate and integrated application of light. The use of current or past projects as objects for researching specific effects of light and lighting is highly encouraged. The results will be presented in an exhibition at the end of the semester.
