To do this, foreign students go through a preparatory year in special educational institutions — Studienkollegs. Before applying, you need to pass the TOEFL exam. The TOEFL score is not lower than 85.

JGU campus

The campus of the educational institution is suburban. It combines the features of a rural and urban campus. Students live separately from the city and create a close-knit community. At the same time, they are not very far from the city and have access not only to urban entertainment, such as cinemas and restaurants, but also to outdoor activities. The school has a library where students can do their homework or just relax. Not only locals study at JGU, but also students from other countries. This is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the culture of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.

Graduates of JGU find jobs without difficulty. One of the reasons is the good reputation of the university among employers, according to the results of the QS ranking.
