Regional Group Jena

City of light Jena

The university city at the green heart of Germany deserves the name Students’ paradise. The Friedrich-Schiller-University and the Ernst-Abbe-University of applied sciences offer a broad spectrum of academic studies. More than 20,000 German and international students keep the city young and lively.

We look forward to enjoying meetings and activities together. We want you to feel in Thuringia like at home. Your partners and children are also cordially invited to join. Scholarship holders from Weimar and Erfurt are also welcome.
