Course Profile
Course participants are registered students of the Friedrich-Schiller University of Jena. The matriculation fee, payable to the university, offers a plethora of advantages including free public transportation in Jena and the region of Thuringia, affordable meals in the university's canteens, and support from the 'Studentenwerk Thüringen' when looking for accommodation. In addition to this, participants in the preparatory course are offered professional assistance and a social programme.

Enrolment in the language courses is based on a valid university entry qualification for subsequent studies at the FSU Jena and an expected admission to studies after completion of the course.

The test results are also decisive for placement in either course 1 or course 2.
