The measures to contain the coronavirus are a major challenge for all of us. For many of you, the current situation not only poses health risks, but it obviously raises many questions and uncertainties. How does the coronavirus crisis affect the semester? How will teaching be organized? Which deadlines will be moved?
On this page, students and prospective students can find up-to-date information on the current situation and new developments at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena.
The information and regulations of the University Leadership on studies, teaching and examinations on the FAQ pages are binding. We currently receive many enquiries and messages. We therefore ask you to please read the FAQ carefully and check whether your questions have been answered before sending us any questions on above-mentioned topics. Many thanks.
Not every question can be answered immediately; many things need to be reorganized and decided upon. Whenever there is news on matters related to studying, it will be published here. Please check the webpage regularly to keep informed. Our University institutions continue to provide their advisory services and they will answer further questions via telephone or email.
The current rules will maintain and we will continue with mainly online teaching until the end of the 2021 summer semester (16 July). This means that face-to-face teaching will continue to be kept to a minimum. On-site teaching is for courses with practical components, practical sessions in the laboratory and using equipment, practical sports exercises and medically indicated supervision, as well as excursions and field trips where necessary. All these activities must be in compliance with the university's infection prevention concept [pdf, 2 mb] de (in German only). Events outside normal lectures and seminars may now also be held face-to-face.
From 21 June 2021, Level 1 of the infection prevention plan (standard operations with preventive infection protection) will once again apply. Regulations of the federal government, the state and the city of Jena that go beyond the measures of stage 1 of the infection protection concept remain unaffected by this.
