The dual studies Bachelor’s programme at IU has a duration of 3.5 years (7 semesters).
We have deliberately chosen not to impose a numerus clausus. Instead, you will have a personal interview with your student counsellor. You will talk about your wishes and your professional goals and together you will find out in which areas your strengths lie.
Here is an overview of our admission requirements:
Students with Abitur
Applicants with a general higher education entrance qualification (Abitur) or a subject-related higher education entrance qualification (Fach-Abitur) can be admitted directly to IU’s dual Bachelor’s programme.

You can enter the programme without a higher education entrance qualification (Fach-)Abitur if you meet one of the following requirements:
- Successful completion of professional training of at least two years and at least three years of work experience in the learned profession
- A Master’s craftsman certificate
- Successful completion of a training course to become a state-certified technician or a state-certified business manager
