Necessary Visits to the Authorities

Before you come to Germany and shortly after your arrival in Giessen, you will need to deal with a few administrative formalities in order for you to be able to concentrate fully on your studies. The information we have put together for you on the following pages should be read very carefully, and you should ensure that you start preparing well in advance for your stay at JLU Giessen.

 

Living Expenses

Expect at least € 853 per month for living expenses. The funding of your studies (personal funding, scholarships, etc.) has to be ensured before you start studying here. Students from non-EU countries will need an official statement that they have sufficient financial resources (e.g. a blocked account in Germany or a scholarship certificate of a public scholarship). We will assist you personally if any problems arise in this area. Before you enrol at JLU Giessen, we strongly advise you to get a German statutory student health insurance (approx. € 105 per month). The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC card) is sufficient for students from EU countries.

 

Accommodation

Please try to organise your accommodation in Giessen as soon as possible.

 

Student ID Card and Semester Ticket

Information on the permanent student ID card will be announced here by the beginning of the semester. You will get a preliminary student ID card when you enrol. The semester ticket is part of your student ID card (costs are included in the semester contribution) and is valid for one semester. You can travel around in nearly the whole Federal State of Hesse (all parts served by RMV and NVV) – as long as you use regional trains, trams, buses, and the underground (your ticket is not valid on fast IC, EC or ICE trains).

 

Language Courses

 

The International Office of JLU Giessen offers German classes from absolute beginner to DSH-level.

You can also take advantage of the opportunity to learn other foreign languages (English, French, Spanish, etc.) at the “Zentrum für fremdsprachliche und berufsfeldorientierte Kompetenzen” (ZfbK).

 

Cultural Activities

During your studies, the International Office offers the opportunity to discover various German cities and regions. Trips to exciting destinations take place throughout the year. You will get details at the InfoTisch. Trips will also be announced in the International Calendar.
