Not so small at all! The Ernst Abbe University of Applied Sciences (EAH) Jena was founded in 1991 as the University of Applied Sciences Jena and was thus one of the first in the new federal states. For some years now, it has been not only Thuringia's largest, but also its most research-intensive university of applied sciences. Nevertheless, everything is close together here. The campus is built in such a way that it is easy to change rooms on foot. The five buildings of the university are partly connected with each other and can also be walked through in this way.

A lot of attention is also paid to the modern equipment of the university.

The EAH Jena cooperates with numerous universities worldwide. The proportion of exchange students is continuously increasing. Teachers also work temporarily at universities in Europe, Asia and Africa. This development is specifically promoted by numerous cooperation agreements.
