Service Package for International Students

The Service Package is an offer to international students at the university locations Erfurt, Ilmenau, Jena, Nordhausen, Schmalkalden and Weimar.

It covers the expenses for accommodation and other achievements in advance, so the financial charges during the semester will be reduced significantly.

The Service Package does not include:

  • Health insurance (Evidence of insurance has to be provided.)
  • Security deposit in the amount of 300.00 €
