Costs and tuition fees

For you, it’s not only the future that counts, but also the here and now. To remain independent at all times, you can organise your studies at IU flexibly, interrupt them at any time and extend them free of charge. Tuition fees. Well invested with us.

All IU study models – a good investment in your future.

In our opinion, studying should not be a luxury, no matter in which form and for whom. Depending on the financial resources available to you, you can choose between different types of study and study models at IU International University of Applied Sciences, as well as a full-time study or a part-time solution. The exact costs and tuition fees depend on your individual wishes and requirements. Whatever you decide, your tuition fees are well invested at IU. 

IU Distance Learning

Flexible studies. Flexible investment. 

Do you want the costs for your IU distance learning programme to be entirely up to you? No problem! We will support you and make sure that you can perfectly balance your free time, your professional life and your finances. The actual amount of your monthly tuition fees depends entirely on you and the time model you choose. In addition to full-time studies (3 years), you can also choose between two models: Part-time I (4 years) and Part-time II (6 years), which are cheaper but take longer. You can find more information about the costs of your IU distance learning programme on the respective website of the different study programmes.  

IU Dual Studies

Many advantages. No costs. 

Would you like to study at a private university and gain practical experience at the same time? At IU, this is possible completely free of charge! Because in our dual studies programme, your practice partner pays the entire tuition fees for you. We will support you in your search for a suitable company and will be happy to advise you on how to optimally cover the costs of your studies.
