Innovative, state-approved and accredited

Top-level education

As Germany's largest private online university, we have more than 20 years of experience in guiding you through your studies. And because the quality of your chosen study programme is close to our hearts, all our programmes are state-approved and system-accredited.

  • State-approved university

    IU International University is a state-approved and accredited university. The recognition confirms the high quality of both the study programmes and the teaching.

    In addition, we make sure that content is always adapted to the latest standards. With success, as our awards, accreditations and certifications show.

  • Institutionally accredited

    IU has been re-accredited by the German Academic Council for five years.

    The German Academic Council has been advising the federal and state governments on issues of higher education development, academia and research since 1957. In doing so, it also has the task of ensuring the quality of teaching and research at non-state universities.

  • System accredited university

    IU International University is system-accredited. The higher education institution can thus – in accordance with the legally defined quality standards – independently accredit new study programmes and react to the demands of the market without any loss of quality.
