The most important questions about studying Computer Science
Don't waste any thought on the numerus clausus (NC), it is not important at IU. We deliberately do without it for most degree programmes because we want to put your talents and strengths in the foreground. This also means that you don't have to take into account the waiting semesters. There is also no nerve-racking selection process. Instead, we would like to talk to you personally. We can then work together to find the right course of study to realise your dreams for the future.

Yes, this is also possible at IU. 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 Computer Science without an Abitur if you are a state-certified technician/business economist, 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 additional work experience.
The Computer Science 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.
This is a loaded and important question. Today, it is hard to imagine our everyday life without computer science. It is used whenever the systematic processing of information is necessary. For example, in newer cars, laptops, smart refrigerators, ticket machines, robots, at the bank, in medicine, in your mobile phone and even on Mars. The Mars rover Perseverance is currently touring there. There is hardly an area that doesn't have points of contact with computer science. In a way, the digital transformation is making information technology ubiquitous.
