Your Dual studies on campus Aachen

When you think of Aachen, do you first think of Printen? The city is indeed known for this special type of gingerbread variety - but it has much more to offer. Aachen Cathedral and the historic old town attract numerous tourists every year. It's no wonder that tourism is one of the strongest service sectors in the region, along with wholesale and retail, logistics, healthcare and information and telecommunications.

Aachen therefore offers the best conditions for your dual study programme – also in terms of nightlife. Germany's westernmost city has a student population of more than 20%, making it an absolute student stronghold. In the Pontviertel, Aachen's party district, there are numerous pubs, bars and cafés where you can turn night into day. Sounds like the perfect city for you? Then start your dual study programme in Aachen.


* Subject to state approval. We expect the approval from the Ministry by the start of the programme at the latest. So far, all IU programmes have been successfully accredited and approved on time.
