Support and Accompanying Programme for Virtual Students

At JLU we are committed to offering you an all-round virtual experience! 

All support and accompanying events and services are listed here on this website.

Online Orientation Week

In the beginning of every summer and winter semester JLU offers an online orientation week for international students. During this orientation week, you can get to know your faculty, fellow students, learn about the IT-tools and administrative systems used at JLU and – of course – ask questions. Depending on your status, e.g. whether you are a VIP student or a virtual degree student, different information sessions might be of interest for you. All sessions will be broadcasted via the website Justus Digital.

Informational & Social Online Events

There are several online meet-ups and social events organized by JLU students to answer your questions regarding your studies at JLU and to get to know other students. Every first and third Monday of the month is a so-called Question Monday, and every wednesday there is an online get-together. Moreover, the student meeting centre Lokal International offers online events, such as cooking nights. You can find an overview of the respective events and workshops in the international calendar.

German Language Courses & the Tandem Programme

Do you want to learn German or perhaps another language? JLU offers German special beginner’s courses for VIP students and evening courses on different levels for all international students. The online evening classes take place twice a week during the semester.

Furthermore, there is the possibility to sign up for the tandem programme where you can learn another student’s language and at the same time teach your own language.
