How to get enrolled in your study programme
1. Your online application
2. Your study contract
Once you’ve sent off your online application form, we will send you a non-binding study contract to sign. You can upload this before one of our study advisors will be in touch to discuss your eligibility and choice of course.
If you don’t quite meet our admission requirements, your contract will be terminated and you will not be charged any application fees.
3. Getting started
Once we have the required documents and they have been approved, you will be enrolled in your study programme. On the starting date of your studies, we will send you your log-in details via email, and you can access our online campus platform and get learning right away.
If you’re joining us on campus, our admissions team will support you through the visa process if necessary and get you prepared for life on our Berlin or Bad Honnef campuses.
Entry requirements - All you need to know
In order to meet the IU admission requirements, you’ll need to first choose your study programme, as the requirements differ depending on your programme and its ECTS model.
Some programmes require previous professional experience, while others require a previous degree in a relevant field or a secondary school diploma. When looking at the study programme page you’re interested in, scroll over to or click on the “Admission” section. That’s where you’ll find in-depth information on the academic requirements you need to fulfil when applying.
If you don’t meet some of the admission criteria – don’t worry! You can contact our Study Advisory Team, who will offer solutions on a case-by-case basis, and help you apply to the right Bachelor or Master study programme for you.
Here’s a list of what you’ll need to start your studies with IU.
