German-quality, career-focused education
Aside from traditional universities, Germany is also home to universities of applied sciences (UAS or Fachhochschulen), where theory and practice go hand-in-hand. This educational model is unique to Germany and is a driving force behind its low unemployment rate in the EU.
According to the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies, five years after graduation, UAS graduates earn an average of €47,700 per year, roughly 14.8% more than university graduates.
For over 20 years, IU has been at the forefront of career-oriented education, offering specialised degrees in high-demand fields such as business, engineering, and technology.
