General events at the beginning of your studies​

We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Jena. For all new students, the Orientation Days always take place before the start of the lectures to make it easier for you to get started. For the winter semester 2022/23 these will take place from 4 to 14 October 2022. You will receive general and subject-specific information on the organization of your studies and you can make yourself familiar with offers and facilities of the University, and get insider knowledge from advanced fellow students in your subject.

In addition, students are very welcome to take part in the workshops in the introductory phase, which are offered as accompanying events during the first year of study.

Students of the University Jena can organize their studies themselves via the online course management system Friedolin. The Faculty of Medicine is an exception to this; here, the system in use is DOSIS. Students of Pharmacy are asked to refer to fsr-pharmazie.uni-jena.de.

In Friedolin, you will find module descriptions, recommended study plans as well as the course catalogue for all bachelor’s, master’s, and teacher training study programmes. Enrolled students can organize their time tables via the ‘apply for modules’ / ‘schedule of classes’ menu, register for examinations, and view their grades.
