For some study programmes we offer preliminary courses in mathematics and chemistry. Here you can refresh your school knowledge, prepare yourself for your studies - and, of course, make initial contacts. As a rule, the preliminary courses are optional, but are recommended.
We publish detailed information on the individual preliminary courses on this page in good time before the respective new dates. Usually, the preliminary courses take place at the beginning of the winter semester.
Please note: For preliminary courses before the start of the semester, you have to look for accommodation by yourself or, if necessary, please talk to the Studierendenwerk about a possible earlier start date for your room in the dormitory.
Specific information for international students
The International Office provides specific information for international students. You can find videos helping you prepare for your stay in Jena as well as information about the mentor programme and special events for international students.
