International Tutoring Service (Intudoc)


The Graduate Academy offers international doctoral candidates and postdocs a free peer-to-peer support service to help you organising your stay in Jena.

Our international tutors will support you with the following matters:

  • questions about entry and stay (visa issues, citizens' service, immigration office)
  • orientation in the city and at the university (search for the right contact person)
  • procedures at FSU (admission as a doctoral candidate, enrolment, multimedia centre, computer centre, library)
  • doctorate and family (finding childcare, kindergarten, school)
  • issues and problems of everyday life (finding accomodation, bank accounts, insurances)

The tutors speak English, German, and some other languages.

You must make all decisions on the basis of this assistance independently and you bear the sole responsibility for them. The Intudocs cannot accept any liability for the information they provide and the consequences resulting from it.
