Even without a high school diploma, you can study with us in many cases. Your career - where you want, how you want! 



You've already been working full time for several years, but are looking for new challenges or want to reorient yourself as regards content? Then you can study with us in a flexible distance learning programme - even without a high school diploma. Because depending on the course of study, the work experience you have gained so far will suffice. In addition, some of the content of your professional activities can even be credited, thus significantly shortening the study time. So nothing stands in the way of your further development! 


As a school leaver, you are spoilt for choice: either you start a traditional vocational training programme or you choose one of the numerous degree programmes at the IU University of Applied Sciences. You can start at any time, even without A-levels and without NC - depending on which form of study or which degree programme you choose. Depending on your individual ideas, you can choose between a full-time study programme, a dual study programme or a distance learning programme. In the dual study programme, you do this in cooperation with one of our numerous practice partners. Your options are as diverse as your future career opportunities! 


Have you already completed a Bachelor's degree and/or started your first job after attending University? Then the next logical step is to take a Master's degree in order to develop your career and qualify for management positions. For this purpose, we offer you the option of a flexibly adaptable distance learning programme. Whether you want to study 100% online, take your exams at any time and from anywhere, or prefer to study on campus depends entirely on your individual requirements and personal circumstances. All options are open to you!
