Your studies for every situation in life
THE STUDIES THAT ADAPT TO YOUR LIFE

YOUR CAREER. WHERE YOU WANT, HOW YOU WANT.

Whether you are a full-time or part-time professional, a high school graduate, a school graduate or a retiree, at IU we have designed the perfect study programme that really has something for everyone. It doesn't matter who you are or where you come from. All that matters is that you want to learn for life and kickstart your career. The courses offered at IU provide education for everyone. And by everyone, we really do mean everyone.  

YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE, YOUR PATH

Do you take care of your children and would like to study again before going back to work? You don't have a high school diploma, but you've worked your way up and now you want to get another degree? You are already working and full-time studies would not fit into your daily routine, but you would like to have more responsibility and a better salary in the future? For all three situations, IU will fit like a glove! 

MAKE IT FLEXIBLE

“Flexible studies” is not just an empty phrase for us, we have made it our goal to pick up all people at their respective ACTUAL state. In their everyday life. With their individual processes. At their home. Whether online or on site on campus – we will pick you up. And bring you to IU.
