Mohammed Nahin Ahmed and Yusuf Zubair Sarwar, spent eight months in Syria last year after contacting Islamist extremists from the UK.
The childhood friends, both 22 years old, come from Handsworth, Birmingham.
They were arrested at Heathrow Airport on their return from Syria in January.
Appearing at Woolwich Crown Court, Ahmed and Sarwar both admitted one count of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorism acts contrary to Section 5 of the Terrorism Act
