You will spend your third semester at one of our partner universities. We expect this to be highly stimulating and rewarding. You will learn things we do not offer in Jena. You will also enhance your language proficiency. This significantly improves your career prospects as surveys of employers have shown.
We have concluded tailor-made partnership agreements, which are highly attractive and specifically designed for you, in Great Britain, Israel, Finland, France, South Africa, the USA and other places. You will not have to pay tuition for most of them because we have arranged some kind of student exchange. We have made every effort to select partners that complement our programme. Some of them focus more on international organisations, some on specific crises scenarios and some on traditional peace and conflict studies. Take a closer look to decide which best meets your personal preferences.
There are various factors to consider when organising your stay. They all require you to plan well in advance:
Those of our students who come from another country might wish to stay in Germany, especially those learning German and wanting to practice it. That is possible, but you will still have to leave Jena. You can either enrol in English-language Master programmes in Magdeburg (“Peace and Conflict Studies”) or close-by Erfurt (“Master of Public Policy”); or you can enrol in the German-language Master programmes in Political Science at our partner universities in Erfurt, Halle and / or Leipzig.
