The most important questions about studying Hotel Management
At IU, we deliberately refrain from offering degree programmes with a numerus clausus (NC). Therefore, you do not need a specific grade point average to study Hotel Management. Waiting semesters and selection procedures are also not an issue for us. We just want to talk to you personally so that we can find out together what your strengths and talents are.
You can currently complete your Bachelor's degree in Hotel Management at the Virtual Campus. This means that you can study anywhere in Germany.
Of course, at IU we are happy to make this possible for you. In addition to the entrance qualification in the form of an Abitur or Fachabitur, interested students without an Abitur have the opportunity to enter our Bachelor's programme. You can study Hotel Management without an Abitur if you have completed an advanced training programme, have a master craftsman's certificate or have at least two years of vocational training and at least three years of professional experience.
The Hotel Management Bachelor’s programme lasts for 36, 48 or 72 months, depending on which time model you choose. If you need more time and semesters for your studies, this is absolutely no problem.
