Bachelor degree at IUB

Schooling in Germany lasts longer than in other countries. Therefore, it is impossible to enter a university immediately after the 11th grade — first, you need to eliminate the academic difference. There are special educational institutions for foreign students — Studienkollegs. Before submitting documents to the university, applicants take an English language exam. The university accepts the results of IELTS or TOEFL. The minimum IELTS score is 5.5. The TOEFL score is not lower than 65.


IUB campus

The suburban campus of IUB combines features of an urban and rural campus. It is located outside the big city, which allows you to focus on your studies. However, it is also not too far, opening up access to more types of recreation, both outdoors and in the city (theaters, museums, restaurants). University students have access to the library. It contains a collection of scientific papers, textbooks and fiction. IUB regularly accepts students for international exchange programs, providing both local and international students with the opportunity to come into contact with different cultures and gain unique experience.

What to do after graduation

It is possible to stay in Germany for an additional 18 months after graduation. To do this, you need to apply for a graduate visa, which allows you to work without providing an offer from an employer. You can find other options for immigration in our article.
