Which study programme suits me best?

Do you still not know what you want to study or which degree programme would suit you and your interests best? No problem, you can easily find it out! Our Studyfinder will ask you a few questions and within a short time, it will tell you the ideal study programme for you. 

And which form of study is best for me?

The right form of study depends on what your individual everyday life looks like. If you want to further your education, expand your expertise and are already working, or if you simply have too much to do to study full-time, then distance learning is the best choice for you. You can also choose a different study model. You can choose from a total of three different models at IU: distance learning, dual studies and myStudium.
