What can I expect?

  • On that day, you can get a first impression of Jena and of our University as well as find out which study programmes we offer.
  • You will be able to ask students and employees of the faculties and departments questions about the study programme you are interested in.
  • In various sessions, we will give presentations on study opportunities, the application process, and enrolment.

Are you ready? Our employees of the Central Academic Advisory Service, the Student Service Centre, and the Master Service Centre will be glad to answer any of your questions regarding studying or university admission. We will explain what an “NC” is and what your odds of getting the study place you want are.

In addition, you will get the chance to meet lecturers and students from all fields of study who will answer your questions about any study programme.

We offer a great variety of study programmes. That is why we recommend that you search the range of study programmes in advance. In our study programme database, you will also find recommended study plans and module handbooks. You can also use our worksheet to prepare.
