Study model and prices for the Master's online study programme in DevOps and Cloud Computing

Depending on your personal or professional situation, full-time study is not always easy to manage. That is why we have also developed part-time programmes for all our degrees, which offer flexible and longer study periods. This way, you can study alongside your job or during your time off, whether at home or abroad. The content of the different models is identical. Depending on the study model, we will adjust your tuition fees accordingly. With the part-time variants, your weekly study workload is reduced.

Can't finish your degree in the allotted time? No problem! We will develop the right study model for everyone. If you realise that you need more time, you can easily switch to another study model with three months’ notice before the end of the month. These are our different study models:

Comments on our distance learning programme


Flexibilität ist der Schlüssel

Ich bin Leistungssportlerin und viel unterwegs, deshalb ist es mir nicht möglich neben meinem Beruf ein Präsenzstudium zu absolvieren und neben meiner Karriere etwas für meine Zukunft zu tun. Die IU macht es mir aber möglich, mein Studium selbst am anderen Ende der Welt zu absolvieren. Natürlich habe ich manchmal weniger Zeit, aber durch die Möglichkeit der flexiblen Planung des Studiums, kann ich mir die Module zeitlich so einteilen, wie ich es möchte.


Gesundheitspsychologie (B.Sc.)

Verfasst am 13.07.2022 auf fernstudiumcheck.de

Alter: 14-25

Studienstart: 2020


Einwandfreie Betreuung und aktuelle Studieninhalte

Die Betreuung während der gesamten Studienzeit (dank Corona und Homeschooling insgesamt 3,5 Jahre) war stets einwandfrei. Egal ob ich telefonische Hilfe beim Studierendensekretariat suchte, mich per E-Mail an das Prüfungsamt wandte oder via Microsoft Teams mit den Dozierenden und Professorinnen Kontakt hatte. Das Feedback kam stets in angemessener Zeit und mir wurde immer sehr umfangreich geholfen. In Bezug auf die Studieninhalte kann ich sagen, dass diese stets sehr aktuell waren (z. B. New Work) und die Studienhefte bereits im Kalenderjahr 2021 teilweise bereits die Auswirkungen der Corona-Pandemie thematisierten. Insgesamt kann ich die IU als Fernstudienpartner uneingeschränkt empfehlen.


Personalmanagement (B.A.)

Nur positive Erfahrungen - gerne wieder!

Es gab nur positive Erfahrungen! Das Studium war abwechslungsreich und interessant gestaltet. Hatte man Fragen, wurden diese sofort beantwortet. Ebenfalls positiv ist, dass man komplett flexibel ist und es keine Präsenzveranstaltungen gibt. Das Fernstudium ist nur weiterzuempfehlen!
