Stipends, Jobs and Financial Matters

Before applying for, and starting with, your studies, you should make sure that you will be able to finance this. Even without having to pay fees, you will need approx. 650€ - 700€ per month. International students are also required by the Immigration Office to be able to prove that they have got sufficient means. You may find a detailed list of costs in our Study Guide.


There are only few job opportunities in Jena. You should have some basic knowledge of the German language. Please also note that Non-EU-citizens, Romanians and Bulgarians must not work more than 120 days per year without work permit; this does not apply for part-time jobs as student aides. You should insists on getting a proper employment contract and that your employer pays social security for you - working illegally may endanger your residence permit.


Applications for stipends must ususally be made 1 year in advance. Please note all criteria which must be fulfilled when applying. Not all stipends mentioned in the links are also available for international students.

ErasmusPlus stipends for guest students are always awarded by the sending home university.

Financial Support in Case of Emergency / End-of-Study Subsidy

International students without German Abitur who pursue a degree programme at FSU Jena may apply for a subsidy in case of financial emergency or for their last exam semester. Please note the criteria and deadlines in the information.

The Student Social Services (Studierendenwerk Thüringen) may also award short-term loans.
