The measures to contain the novel 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 winter semester 2020/21? 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.
Until the end of the lecture period on 12 February 2021 teaching will generally be switched to digital formats. The Executive Board of the Friedrich Schiller University has therefore decided to extend the current regulations until 31 January and to suspend attendance events until then. Exceptions to this rule are examinations that must be taken in person.
If and how internships, practical exercises and supervisions with medical indications will be possible again from February depends in particular on the 7-day incidence of the city of Jena and can only be decided at the end of January.
