We encourage our students to start planning a semester abroad at an early stage. Immersing oneself in everyday life in a foreign country and a foreign-language university greatly widens one's horizons and can open up completely new career opportunities. Our Bachelor's study plan is quite flexible such that a semester abroad can be easily integrated. You will experience that with your education received in Jena you are well prepared to be successful at any other university worldwide. In fact, our graduates are frequently invited and requested by foreign colleagues.
Our department is partner of the Europan PCAM network (Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials, https://www.pcam-doctorate.eu/External link). This network offers the chance to stay abroad for at least 3 months during a PhD study, and finally obtain a European Doctorate, besides the degree offered from our department.
