Welcome to Discovery Days!

Finding the right study programme can be a long process. You should take advantage of various offers to get more information about your studies. As we still want to give you a look behind the scenes in times of corona and social distancing, we have created an online replacement.

  • Do you want to explore our university with a school class or another group of prospective students? No problem! We look forward to our virtual meeting. The team at our Central Academic Advisory Service will be hosting a Zoom seminar to reveal our range of study options, talk about access to higher education (application, admission and enrolment) and provide tips for a successful start to your studies.

  • We will also be happy to guide individual prospective students through the study orientation process, helping them find information and make a decision. Feel free to book a personal appointment with the Central Academic Advisory Service.

The Thuringian State and University Library (ThULB) supplies the Friedrich Schiller University Jena with lots of information and literature. It provides over 58,000 users not only with numerous classic forms of media (e.g. books and magazines), but also a diverse range of complete texts and electronic resources (e.g. e-books, e-journals and databases).

The wide range of training courses at the start of each semester also include introductions aimed at new students.
