New challenges to approach

A course of study will not organize itself. Semester dates, choosing courses, submission deadlines, a semester abroad, or perhaps life alongside your studies—it is you who must keep those in mind and organize your studies yourself. To give you a hand, we have collected all relevant information on studying for you on the following pages.


Students and prospective students can find up-to-date information on the current COVID-19 situation and new developments at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena on this page.
