Cancellation in case of illness

In exceptional cases, a booking may be canceled if an injury prevents participation in the course. For this purpose, within the first three weeks of the course, a report must be sent to the university sports department and a medical certificate must be submitted stating that the participation in the course is not possible. For the remittance of the course fee, a processing fee of 5.00 euro will be charged. This regulation does not apply for the camps of university sports.

More information and corresponding forms can be found under "Insurance". Students from other universities must inform themselves about the insurance cover for participation in the university sports of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena.

Exclusion from university sports

Registration for a course is always binding and obligatory for payment of the course fee. A revocation of the direct debit procedure is for this reason not permitted. Should it nevertheless be made or the course fee be returned for other reasons (giving false account information, non-coverage of the account), the University reserves the right to exclude the person concerned from the university sports. The chargeback fee of the bank will be charged in any case. In addition, a processing fee of up to 6.00 euro can be charged.

The insurance of the Landesunfallkasse Thüringen applies exclusively to students at universities in Thuringia, but only to a limited extent. Both employees and external participants are insured at the camps by insurance from the Landesportbund. Students from universities outside of Thuringia have to insure themselves. We therefore urge all participants an additional private travel insurance.
