Why study an online degree at IU?

For us, online education isn’t an afterthought or something we were forced to do. It’s a part of our vision for making education more accessible, and has been so for over a decade now.  

What this means for you is simple: you get an online education experience designed to maximise the benefits and freedom of the online format. There are no limitations, no having to match the timeframe of in-person classes, and no boundaries to what you can achieve. 

That means distance learning degrees that match your life, not the other way around – with cutting-edge technological tools, like a personal AI teaching assistant, a digital campus and a designated app
