Flexible Studies

Whatever your circumstances, IU has the flexible study model for you. Balance family commitments or work and study online. You can also try the student experience in Germany with our on-campus option. 

Study Online

Whether you have a job, family, or both, IU’s accredited online degrees let you study when you can, with 24/7 access to our digital learning materials, from lectures and library materials to discussion forums. This option means you can save money on your internationally recognised degree as well. 

On Campus

Get the best of both worlds, live in Germany and attend lectures 2-3 times per week. You study in small groups and get close contact with lecturers, and also get to study material online, so you can find a job, join a society at IU, immersing yourself in life in Germany while preparing for your future. 

A scholarship that goes beyond

We understand that not everyone can fulfil admission requirements right away, and we believe that should not stop you from starting your online studies and getting your scholarship of upto 80%. Read more about our Scholarship Programme.
