In Kiel, you will study right by the sea. Seagulls, the fresh smell of the sea and a stiff breeze included. The state capital of Schleswig-Holstein is located on the Baltic Sea, known among other things for the international sailing event Kiel Week and the German handball record champion THW Kiel.  

The port and especially the ferry and cruise ship trade are fundamental to Kiel’s economy. 

And after a day of studying? Off to the beach or to one of the numerous pubs right by the sea. 

That's what our students say

“What I particularly like about the dual study programme at IU is the pleasant size of the classes and the modern atmosphere on campus.“
