A stay abroad is becoming increasingly important for your career. As a member of the teaching staff at the University of Jena, you have the opportunity to learn foreign education systems and to play an active part in shaping them, both in Europe or elsewhere in the world. On the following pages, you will find information about short-term teaching-related stays abroad.
