Benefits of an IU degree
Take advantage of all we have to offer you at IU.
Flexible and adaptable study programs
Whether you’re planning on working while pursuing your degree, studying full-time, or are juggling a family, you decide when and where you want to study. We offer 100% flexibility so that you don’t have to choose between life and your education.
Your digital learning platform is available 24/7, and accessible from wherever you are at any given moment — just as long as you have an internet connection. Even if you study on-campus in Germany, you can arrange your classes so that some of them will take place virtually, to best suit your schedule.
And if the unexpected happens, you don’t need to worry — you can take a semester off, switch to a different time model, or extend your study period (a regular study period for a bachelor is 36 months) for up to 12 months, free of charge.
Not sure which option is best for you? An IU student can help you choose:
Study period time models
We have taken time constraints into account when designing these online study programs. So, you can switch between three-time models and organize your learning content to suit your individual needs:
- Full-time: perfect for those who want to hit the ground running and shorten their study time by learning at a faster pace.
- Part-time I: great for all-rounders who want to go full throttle in their studies alongside their job and reduce monthly tuition costs at the same time.
- Part-time II: best for those who want to take their time with their studies alongside the hustle and bustle of everyday life and your job, while also reducing monthly costs.
You’ll get all the support you need
Working towards a degree may be a challenge, but it is also worthwhile. At IU, we guarantee all-around personal support throughout your studies. Our Study Advisory Team will walk you through the application and enrolment process. During your studies, you will not only have our student office take care of all your administrative needs, but our skilled and experienced tutors will also oversee your academic development, your personal study coach can help with your organization and degree planning, and the IT Helpdesk will make sure your virtual campus runs smoothly for you.

Your studies will get you ahead
Do you want a career change, or do you aim to get promoted? With our online degrees, you’ll develop skills that increase your chances in the job market, and you’ll discover brand-new industries and fields of work.
Whether you’re looking to take your first steps in the professional world, change your career, or advance into a managerial position in your current place of employment, a degree from IU will give you all of the tools you need to successfully advance, transition or embark on your career path: practical work skills, industry familiarity, and theoretical proficiency.
An internationally recognized and accredited degree from IU International University of Applied Sciences will help you earn more in your current position or in other roles elsewhere, as you will be a more qualified and skilled professional.
Take exams when you’re ready
Just like with the rest of your studies, you get to decide when and where you want to take your exam; you can do it online or at one of our on-site examination centres in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland.
Our online exams take place “on-demand”, meaning that they are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! You have two options for choosing an online exam: you can book a fixed slot in advance or start the exam spontaneously. The advantage for you: you book a slot and sit your exam on your preferred day and at your preferred time, or you can take the test immediately by selecting the next available appointment on the half- or full hour.
But the best part is that not all modules require a final written exam! Some courses will require a term paper, project report, presentation, or workbook instead.
So, if you’re looking to have complete control over your degree, IU International University of Applied Sciences is meant for you!
