About dual study programme at IU

The dual study programme at IU offers students the opportunity to gain practical experience in a regional company in addition to theoretical lectures and seminars. This model allows students to apply their acquired knowledge directly into practice, either in a weekly rotation or a split-week model. The theoretical part of the study programme can be completed in different ways: traditionally on-site at the campus, through online teaching or also independently of a location via our virtual campus.

About myStudium at IU

The full-time programme with up to three professionally guided tutorials per week allows students maximum flexibility as it can be completed either on-site or virtually. What sets myStudium apart is the unique opportunity to change campuses every quarter and study at a different location. Through the integration of modern teaching methods such as videos, interactive scripts and the self-developed learning app 'IU Learn' in combination with small learning groups and experienced teachers from the field, students receive optimal support to study successfully and to meet their individual life situations preparing them optimally for the future working world.

Shaping the future with IU: The study benefits at a glance

  • No numerus clausus: motivation is what counts here, not the grade point average. It is therefore possible to start your chosen degree programme at IU without a numerus clausus or entrance exam.
