Your myStudies with extras

myStudies is the most modern way for you to complete your studies. Find out in this video from Mona (available in German only) why you should definitely choose myStudies at IU International University.

Please note: all of our videos are available in German language only. If you want to know more about the benefits of myStudies, please feel free to contact us at any time.


Thanks to the two-part semester, you usually only take three modules at a time and complete each of them directly with an exam. This means that your exams are ideally spread out over the year.

Full Support during studies

Your study advisor, study guides and career coaches support you on your way to a successful degree - before, during and at the end of your studies.
