International Office

The International Office is the main point of contact whether you are a foreign student wanting to study at the Jade University of Applied Sciences, or a student or staff from the university planning to go abroad – to a European country or elsewhere. We offer individual assistance at all of our three campuses in Wilhelmshaven, Oldenburg, and Elsfleth, and support you in planning and organising your stay abroad.

If you are a foreign student planning on studying in Germany, we offer extensive assistance to help you with your plans. We have 171 partner universities in 35 different countries and having worked together with many of them for a long time, our experience will help us cater to your specific needs.
