Top 3 reasons to learn on campus at IU
Accessibility: Helping you get started as a student
No need to wait a year or compete with others – our on-campus-learning options are available to any student who meets the admission requirements, with intake dates 2-4 times a year, depending on the programme.
Only meet some of the admission requirements? Thanks to our unique pathway programme, you can still come to Germany and start working towards your goals – we’ll give you all the support you need.
Flexibility: Structured studies, with plenty of freedom
Learn on campus to enjoy the best of both worlds – structure & flexibility. By working with a fixed curriculum and attending regularly recurring tutorials, you’ll have a clear and easy-to-follow study plan.
Thanks to only having your tutorials 2-3 times per week, you’ll have plenty of time to work or spend on your hobbies, and with 24/7 access to all of IU’s online study tools, you can expand your knowledge whenever you want.
Employability: Start your professional life in germany
What better place to build your skills and kick off your career than Europe’s biggest economy? From traditional industry to engineering and all the way to start-ups and digital media agencies:
Germany offers countless opportunities for young professionals. With the help of our career experts, and thanks to the option of getting an 18-month post-study visa to find work, it’s the perfect graduate launchpad.

Intimate, Supportive, and Valuable: Your on-site learning
Accessible, quality education means having enough space to express yourself. Forget about crowded study halls and impersonal events – at IU, you’ll study in small, easygoing groups, and work closely with your tutors.
Study independently, but not alone. You’ll have constant support - whenever you need it – from your study guides, study coaches, career experts, tutors, and fellow students. Plus, the student office is available for any questions about life in Germany.
Thanks to the two-part semester, you usually only take three modules at a time – each one with its own final exam. This means that your exams are spread out over the year in an ideal way, giving you a better chance of passing them.
Be part of a wide range of campus-related activities, network with students from all over the world, and benefit from free-of-charge access to MSOFFICE365 – plus a ton of student discounts on various services and products.
