Dual studies

Dual studies can be so flexible

You don't have any IU campus location near you? Or you simply want to be more flexible? With our virtual campus, you can study from wherever you want.

Would you come to the campus... or would the campus come to you?

IU study locations can be found all over Germany and have a well-developed network of practice companies. So no matter whether you would describe yourself as an outdoorsman or a cosmopolitan, a northerner or an alpine enthusiast - you will find the right IU study location in the region of your choice.

But you would like to be even more flexible or have already set your sights on a practice partner that is a little further away from the nearest IU campus? No problem: With the dual degree programme at the virtual campus, you are now completely free to choose your place of residence. Because then all your lectures will take place virtually.

Not sure what suits you? Our study counsellors will be happy to help you with your search. Or simply visit us directly on campus, for instance during our on-site information event.

Study on-site – or at the virtual campus

With over 40 study locations, we can be found all over Germany. You still don't have a suitable study location for your dual degree programme nearby? Or do you simply want to be more flexible?

With our virtual campus, you can study from wherever you want: You learn the theory virtually in small classes. You complete your practical work at a company in the region of your choice.
Study at the Virtual Campus


In the virtual campus, you learn the theory and take your exams – all completely online. Our lecturers teach live and interactively via Zoom video conferences.

You follow the lessons on your screen and in small classes. Exchange also plays a big role in the virtual campus: For example, you can work on case studies together with your fellow students, form study groups or network with each other in some places in the on-site IU lounges.

You can complete your practical training – wherever you want – at a company in your desired region. With this innovative model, you have maximum flexibility and can optimally adapt your studies to your situation.
