What is IOS?

Internationally Oriented Studies (IOS) is an international engineering program designed to offer German and international students the unique opportunity to study in Germany. German students study with students from a variety of cultures. 

The standard study duration is 6 semesters (3 years).

Language of Instruction

The language of instruction in the complete IOS Bachelor's programs is German.  We do not offer programs taught in English.

Some tutorials may taught in other languages, including, but not necessarily limited to, English. 

Therefore, all applicants except those with a German Abitur or Fachhochschulreife must submit a B2 level German language certificate, such as DSH-1 or Test DaF 4x3.  We cannot make any exceptions to this requirement. 

Application Deadlines

1 July for non-European Union members.

15 July for German citizens and European Union members.

Students from all African countries, Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan should send completed applications by 15 May to increase your chances of getting a visa on time.  

We do not admit new IOS students to start in the summer semester.
