During your studies

A course of study will not organize itself. Semester dates, choosing courses, submission deadlines, a semester abroad, or perhaps life alongside your studies—it is you who must keep those in mind and organize your studies yourself. To give you a hand, we have collected all relevant information on studying for you on the following pages.


The Thuringian Conference of University Presidents has decided to postpone the start of lectures for the summer semester until at least May 4.

Examinations are cancelled and will be postponed to the next possible date. This also includes oral exams (except for medicine and pharmacy).

The lecture hall building Carl Zeiß Straße 3 as well as the research and administration buildings are now only accessible to university employees and external service providers. This also applies to the main university building, with the exception that you can recharge and validate your Thoska there.

We kindly ask you to clarify questions by phone or e-mail if possible. Answers to the most frequently asked questions about coronavirus can you get here.
