Tuition fees – Online studies

We designed IU’s online learning model to fit your schedule, not the other way around.

So even if work, family or personal projects keep you busy, we’ll help you integrate your studies seamlessly. And if you need more time, you can simply take a semester off or extend your degree by up to 12 months — completely free of charge.

You can find precise details of the tuition fees on the relevant course page under “tuition fees”.

We accept payments by bank transfer, direct debit or credit card (via Flywire).

Time models

Time models: Study full-time or part-time

Full-time studies are not always easy to manage, depending on your personal or professional situation. That’s why we’ve developed part-time programmes that offer flexible and extended study periods for all of our study programmes. This way, you can study alongside your job or in your free time, whether you’re in Germany or abroad. The various models are all identical in content. We will adapt your tuition fees to suit your time model. If you choose one of the part-time options, your weekly study workload will be reduced.

Full-time

Perfect for students who want to hit the ground running and shorten the period of study by increasing their studying pace.

Part-time I

Excellent for talented all-rounders who want to give their studies everything they’ve got while holding down a job and keeping down their monthly costs at the same time.

Part-time II

Ideal for students who would like to take their time completing their course on top of their job and everyday life and keep down the monthly costs of their studies.
