Advantages of your dual study programme at the IU

  • Interlocking theory and practice

    Study, work and leisure - with us you can combine everything: thanks to regular alternation between theory and practice. You always apply what you have learned directly in the practical phases - this makes it much easier and faster for you to understand course content.

  • Teaching at the highest level

    The IU offers you an excellent dual study programme with which you can look forward to a promising future: 2 out of 3 students are taken on by their practice partner after graduation. Our degree programmes are accredited and state-recognised.

  • Private dual studies for €0

    Private study sounds expensive? At IU you pay €0 - because your practice partner pays your tuition fees.

  • No Numerus Clausus

    Motivation cannot be measured with grades - that's why we deliberately do without an NC. Instead, we find out together where your talents and strengths lie.

  • 10.000+ Practice Partners

    We offer you extensive support in your search for a practice partner. We draw on our network of more than 10,000 practice partners in a wide range of industries throughout Germany or support you in your application to other companies.

  • Learning in small groups

    Overcrowded lecture halls? Not with us! You study in small groups and in a personal atmosphere. Within this, you can ask questions at any time, actively participate and benefit from a greater learning effect.
