Survey for incoming Students with problems

Dear international students,
We have created this survey to find out which of the international students enrolled at JGU are still in their Homeland and probably won´t be in Germany for the upcoming wintersemester 21/22. Please sign up if you are not sure if you will be able to come to Germany until mid-October. We want to collect this data to make the university administration aware of this problem and possibly find a good solution.

Thank you very much for participating!
