Why should I study here?

Young, but oh so impressive. At just a little over 50 years old, the JKU has experienced quite a bit- and has a lot to offer: an outstanding selection of academic degree programs on one hand and on the other, it is a place to be happy.  And instead of scattering faculties and departments throughout the city, almost all of the departments are available in one, well-designed modern location. In addition to shorter distances and being able to save time getting from one place to the other, the campus environment supports one important thing in particular: communication.  Students and professors spend time together both in and out of the classroom.

What are the admissions criteria?

Applications must be completed by February 5th and everything must be translated into German. International students must provide proof that their high school diploma would allow admission to a university in their own country. Applicants also need to include a photocopy of their passport.

What is student life like?

The JKU campus is not just a place to learn and study. You can also spend some time and take advantage of many fun, recreational things to do: The University Sports Institute (USI) offers over 150 different sports exercise, and recreation classes. Or you could join the university orchestra and make beautiful music. Or simply "hang out" and enjoy the park-like surroundings. And don't forget to enjoy the culinary diversity on campus. A place to feel right at home!

Scholarships & Funding

Housing options.

There are a number of dorms on and around campus.  Singles are in the range of 350 euros per month.  They all have private bathrooms and some include cafeterias and gym facilities.

Dining information

There are snack bars, cafes, pub, bars, cafeterias, and restaurants on campus.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
