The JIM-Program is made up of four semesters. Courses start annually in Fall Semester.

Our catalogue currently contains over 30 Master-level courses taught in English and especially developed for the JIM-Program. You can choose from this catalogue according to your personal preference (Courses offered at the different locations may vary each semester). Students studying at the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt have the opportunity to choose a maximum of 18 ECTS from our German courses.

Additionally, you have to take a project and a "Culture and Language" class. The C&L classes aim at giving you useful knowledge for your semester abroad.

Meanwhile, students who are interested can finish their studies with a Double Degree. The additional worklaod for the students is reduced to a minimum.
