    IU International University is a university in private sponsorship whose study programmes are accredited but not refinanced by the state. For this reason, we have to charge fees for the study programme. Only in the dual study model of the IU are these fees usually taken over by the company; in addition, an internship allowance is paid in some cases.

    The term “accreditation” describes the recognition of higher education institutions or study programmes according to certain criteria in order to ensure the quality of teaching and studies. In addition, it is intended to increase the transparency of study programmes and improve the international comparability of degrees. The institutional accreditation of private universities is carried out by the German Council of Science and Humanities, while the accreditation of study programmes at state-recognised universities is carried out by special accreditation agencies. The respective principles for this are defined by the Accreditation Council.

    Yes. The IU was reaccredited in 2021 for a period of 5 years.

    More than 75,000 people are now studying at IU. We have excellent feedback from our students, whether in online-learning, part-time or dual study. We are only successful when our students are successful.


    You can choose your degree programme to suit your particular stage of life and design it individually depending on the type of study. In general, there are four types of study available to you: In distance learning, you can study 100% online, independent of time and place, and without any compulsory attendance. Or you can opt for a combined study programme to continue your education parallel to your daily work. With myStudium, you choose whether you want to study on campus or in online events. Another alternative is the dual study programme, where you spend about half of your study time in the company and the rest of the time on campus.

    That is entirely your decision: Our degree programmes can be studied either full-time or part-time. In the case of full-time study, you will take modules worth 30 ECTS points per semester (which corresponds to a total workload of 900 hours). However, you are also welcome to book a smaller number of courses per semester. In each time model, your studies can be extended by 12 months free of charge.

    We place great emphasis on interactivity. This means that in addition to the written study materials, numerous online learning materials are available to you. This includes, for example, digital study scripts as PDFs and as interactive e-book versions in our learning app IU Learn, self-tests, learning videos and, in selected courses, tutorials, revision courses or interactive teaching events. Furthermore, you can exchange information with other students via our virtual campus and also consult with your academic advisors at any time.

    Yes, when you register at our university, you will receive access data for our online library, where you can research literature and in some cases also read it directly as an e-book.

    Yes, IU offers a range of options for completing a Master’s degree.

    The standard period of study for a Bachelor’s degree is 36 months full-time (exception for dual studies: 42 months). If you know from the start that you will need more time for your studies, you can choose the extended study time of 48 months (part-time 1) or 72 months (part-time 2) in advance in the distance learning and combined studies study model.

    Yes. To take a break from your studies, we offer you the option of a semester off in the distance learning, combined studies and myStudium programmes. During this time, your studies are suspended and you have no access to the online campus or your learning materials. However, we do not charge any fees during your leave of absence.


    A leave of absence is possible from the second semester onwards. In total, the leave of absence may not exceed half of the standard period of study of your degree programme (e.g. for a six-semester Bachelor’s programme, a maximum of three semesters of leave).


    Need more time? You can also extend the standard period of study in any study model by up to 12 months free of charge. This way we offer you maximum flexibility!

    Yes, all students at IU International University receive their personal student ID. You can access your student card directly in the browser version of the IU Learn app!

    The 86% scholarship is offered by Artsy Africa Academy in collaboration with IU. The scholarship must therefore be applied for on this website.
