FURTHER EDUCATION FOR NEW JOBS AND TASKS – 50 BACHELOR'S AND MASTER'S PROGRAMMES TO CHOOSE FROM

Erfurt, 01 April 2020 - From now on, all those affected by short-time work, whose loss of working hours is 50% or more, can study free of charge for up to six months in the distance learning programme of the IUBH International University of Applied Sciences. There is a choice of around 50 Bachelor's and Master's programmes from almost all fields and sectors at www.iubh-fernstudium.de/kurzarbeit/: From IT & Technology to Health & Social Services to Business & Management. IUBH is one of the leading private universities in Germany with over 30,000 students. Dr. Sven Schütt, Managing Director of IUBH: "We would like to make an active contribution in the current situation. Our offer is aimed at all those who now want to actively use their short-time work phase and further their education for new jobs and tasks. Those on short-time work not only earn less, but are also exposed to emotional stress. This makes it all the more important to find a meaningful activity during this time that will qualify you for your future career. In every crisis there is also an opportunity."

The distance learning programme at IUBH can be completed entirely online. It covers almost all subject areas: Business & Management, Health & Social Services, Design & Media, Marketing & Communication, IT & Technology, Architecture & Construction, Education & Psychology and Human Resources & Law. With the current offer, short-term students can save up to 1,800 euros on their Bachelor's degree and up to 3,000 euros on their Master's degree.

At the end of the six months, there are no financial obligations; access to the portal ends automatically. At the same time, acquired skills can be credited towards a later degree programme.
