Outside of the classroom, we’re known for our exciting Introduction Week, which has been rated one of the best in Europe, as well as our very active and international student union that offers students loads of extracurricular activities, events, trips, etc.

This will give you valuable real-life experiences and cultural knowledge, making you more employable. You’ll also get the chance to establish contacts with future employers, as well as build a network of contacts in the business world. Many programmes at JU offer the opportunity to collaborate with companies in various ways – from student projects and customised courses, to internships and industrial placements. Nearby Science Park, a business incubator partly financed by JU, creates an environment for innovative students to try out and commercialise their ideas.
