New university, new town and lots of questions? In this video, Niklas and Sarah explain what students at the University of Jena should consider before starting into the semester. Looking for accommodation, sending off the BAföG application, unpacking the starter package, browsing through the guide for freshers (Blauer Faden), attending precourses, registering at the citizens‘ service office – all this should be tackled before the lectures start.
