Your career

Practical & job-ready skills

What sets IU International University of Applied Sciences apart from other higher education institutions, is our focus on equipping our graduates with practical, job-ready skills that they can implement in their future careers.  

All of our study programmes are designed with real-world applications in mind. We put emphasis on the combination of necessary theoretical knowledge with as much practical orientation and implementation as possible.  

Regardless of the programme you choose to study, you’ll be working towards achieving skills that are easily transferable into your future career experiences. 

As an international university headquartered in Germany, we aim to spread the successful models of German vocational training and work-orientated academic education, on a global scale.  

Excellent practical education

Germany boasts one of the lowest unemployment rates in Europe, and the lowest youth unemployment rates, owing in large part to this focus on excellent practical education.  

At IU, we consider it our mission to help students from all over the world reach their full potential  and find the work that best suits them. 

Our ways to help you achieve your goals are varied, from offering career coaching sessions at our campuses in Germany, to giving you the chance to earn a Dual UK and German Degree and thus boost your international profile, to hosting regular online and in-person networking and career events. 

We put a strong emphasis on the quality of our degrees and teaching staff. All of our professors have a strong international profile, as well as a minimum of 5 years of professional experience in their field of study, alongside their academic career. Many of our professors are company founders, CEOs or chairs of committees and boards. 

Internationally recognised university

IU International University of Applied Sciences is a state-accredited, internationally recognised university, and our programmes and services have won multiple awards.
