Never stop educating yourself

Initiated by the former President of the University, Klaus Dicke, this programme with its easy-to-understand presentations is tailored to our senior citizens. The University offers 45-minute lectures once a month on topics ranging from the humanities to social and natural sciences. During the lectures, attendees are encouraged to ask questions when needed.

All presentations are open to the public and take place in the University Main Building at Fürstengraben 1, Jena. You can participate without prior registration for free. The programme is determined by the programme board which meets once a year to identify exciting topics.
