Generally, our students are rather satisfied with the study conditions at the University. 70% of our students are extremely satisfied with their study environment and 80% of students enjoy studying at the University of Jena. However, there are some areas in which they considered the study conditions not as positive. This kind of feedback was critical to us, too.
