International University of Applied Sciences Bad Honnef (IUBH)

The IUBH is geared to the demands of the global market

Studying at the IUBH makes careers in a global environment possible. We live out this credo in that English is the teaching language and the language used on our campus. We also impart internationality with many other distinguishing features:

  • Our experts and faculty from around the world teach both technical know-how and soft skills
  • We maintain multiple collaborations with partner universities in Europe, America, Australia and Asia
  • At the IUBH languages in international demand are taught at advanced levels by native speakers and additional intercultural communication competence is developed
  • There are currently students from over 85 countries on our campuses

For our students, our international commitment pays off in many ways. Approx. 75% of our graduates, work successfully in an international environment.

Every semester IUBH is fortunate to welcome in Bad Honnef groups of international students both for the duration of a full study programme and for exchanges of one or two semesters from our partner universities around the world. Their presence on campus and their contribution to the academic and social life here are an invaluable part of the international atmosphere and learning environment the IUBH prides itself for.

With the assistance of a team of student volunteers, the  International Office staff strives to make their arrival and stay in Germany as easy and comfortable as possible and organises welcome / information sessions to make the transition to another culture and system of studying as smooth as possible.

Each year IUBH students spend semesters of study at IUBH partner universities world-wide, gaining valuable international and inter-cultural experience within the high-quality curricula offered at our partner institutions abroad.

We have long-standing cooperations and partnerships with universities in North and South America, Asia, Australia and Europe. The choice of partner universities open to students depends on which study programme students are enroled in at the IUBH. Depending on which study programme students are studying at the IUBH, periods of study abroad are either optional or mandatory components of their studies.

Students of all study programmes have to meet the academic requirements of both the IUBH and the partner university they are applying to before taking up their studies abroad. All applications are done through the IUBH International Office to partner universities with whom we have a partnership agreement only. Students can access information on procedure and deadlines through the university intranet (CARE), by personal appointment or through various information sessions offered by the International Office. Should students encounter difficulties during their application process, then the International Office can act as mediator to help clarify issues.

Students of our 6-semester bachelor programmes can apply for admission to our semester abroad programme at partner universities for their specific area of study. Places are limited and precedence has to be given to applicants who best fulfil the application criteria - these include academic performance at the IUBH, extra-curricular activities, references from professors, correlation between student expectations and programme parameters as well as a well grounded sense of purpose and motivation. Students who are admitted to the programme will be informed by and guided through the various application steps by the International Office.

Every semester the IUBH is fortunate to welcome international students from our partner universities around the world for  full study programmes and for exchanges of one or two semesters. The International Office is the first point of contact for all international students.

International students benefit from the unique opportunity of being able to fully study in English in Germany. At the same time they’re able to learn or improve their German language skills and their understanding of German life and culture. Their presence on campus and their contribution to the academic and social life here are an invaluable part of the international atmosphere and learning environment the IUBH prides itself on.

With the assistance of a team of student volunteers, the International Office strives to make arriving and living in Germany easy and comfortable for international students. Welcome and information sessions make the transition to another culture and system of studying as smooth as possible.

Exchange students must be nominated by their home institutions for studies at the IUBH. Pre-nomination information about the IUBH is available at the international offices of our partner universities to help students in their study abroad applications. Once our partner universities confirm which students have been nominated for studies at the IUBH, we receive the student applications and are in direct contact with exchange students to assist in pre-arrival and other matters.

International students who have met IUBH admission requirements and who have signed a contract to study at the IUBH may contact the International Office. We help with academic, pre-arrival and arrival matters. We also provide assistance for students who want to spend a semester at one of our partner universities. Our door is always open for all international students at the IUBH, and we are happy to help where needed.

Our doors remain open for all international students throughout their studies at the IUBH if further assistance is needed.
