IUBH becomes the first German University to be awarded a QS 5 Star Rating for Online-Studies

The Champions League of Digital Education: IUBH University of Applied Sciences is the first German University to be awarded a QS 5 Star Rating for Online-Studies

99 out of 100: A Phenomenal Test Score Validates the IUBH’s Consistent Focus Towards Online Studies
The IUBH University of Applied Sciences, one of the leading digital universities in Europe, has been awarded the QS 5 Star Rating for online-learning. The internationally recognized rating system evaluates the quality of the learning environment in online studies. Can the students gain access easily to digital lectures and courses? How easy is it for professors and lecturers to connect and exchange with one another? The IUBH received top scores in all of these categories and with 99 out of 100 possible points, a dream rating. It is the first and to date the only German university to receive this distinction of the world-renowned QS Institute. Accordingly, from beginning of 2021 onwards, IUBH will be included in the QS Star Ratings at www.topuniversities.com. This distinction validates the IUBH’s consistent realignment towards flexible online studies that conform to students’ needs.

Online Studies Break Down Borders: New Opportunities for Students and Universities
Online learning offers new educational and career opportunities, especially for those for whom going to university was previously out of the question. Today, students can choose from locations all over Germany as well as many diverse offerings worldwide. Clear criteria are necessary in order to ensure transparency and quality. “The award is an important milestone because it confirms our position as a trailblazer for online education and makes our online offerings internationally comparable,” commented Florian Hummel, vice-rector at IUBH. He continues, “Our students learn when and where their personal requirements fit best – regardless whether they live in Nigeria or Bavaria. This is possible because we consistently prioritized digital learning.”
