General events at the beginning of your studies​

We are pleased that you have decided to study in Jena! For all new students we organized the Orientation Days at the University Jena from 1 to 15 October 2021. If you have unanswered questions or if they should arise during the semester, our advisory and service institutions will be happy to assist you.

In addition, students are very welcome to take part in the workshops in the introductory phase, which are offered as accompanying events during the first year of study.


By the way, the “Guide for New Students” provides further important information on the start of your studies at the University Jena. It is available online in advance.
