1. Conduct of the study programme 1.1. Programme designation and degree
The IUBH Internationale Hochschule (hereafter: IUBH) is committed to implementing the distance learning
programme, which is stated on page 1, in line with the valid study and examination regulations. The contract is
binding once the electronic confirmation of acceptance of the IUBH is sent. Upon successful completion of the
distance learning programme, the student acquires the academic title dependent on the chosen study programme in
line with the valid study and examination regulations. The content of the offered courses and the respective time
period correspond to the module handbook and curriculum, which the student receives. Furthermore, the student
receives a copy of the study and exam regulations of the chosen programme for distance learning at the IUBH.
1.2. Changes to the course plans
The IUBH has the right to modify study plans, if it is reasonable for students and corresponds to the educational
objective of the study programme.
1.3. Booking additional services
Within their study programmes, registered students can book additional courses and modules as well as
complementary services as of their study programme. Booking this content is subject to additional costs. The booking
of courses and additional offerings is binding, any cancellation at a later stage causes cancellation costs amounting
to 35 Euros. In case of a cancellation of a language course, cancellation costs amount to 200 Euros.
Depending on the admission requirements, passing an aptitude test (TASC) may be necessary.
Additional conditions regarding this are decided upon in a supplementary agreement, which must be concluded
2. Contract duration 2.1. Contract duration
The contract has a defined duration, which is stated on page 1. The contract starts on the date stated on page 1, but
on the earliest with the receipt of the access data to the Campus Management System and ends after the duration
stated on page 1, without any notice of termination.
A student, who possesses a university entrance qualification and who does not submit the proof for the university
entrance qualification in the correctly certified form, but only via copy or scanned, will be enrolled conditionally. The
same applies, if other documents next to the proof of the university entrance qualification, which are necessary for
the enrolment, aren't submitted.
A conditionally-enrolled student does not receive a student identification card or a certificate of study. The
conditionally-enrolled student is not allowed to take any exams or attend courses with any type of examination other
than exam. This status will be changed as soon as the student submits the university entrance qualification in
certified form and all other documents, which are necessary for complete enrolment. The student is obliged to send
the documents via mail to IUBH within three months after the in section 2.1. defined start of the contract. If the
student fails to follow this obligation, (s)he will be exmatriculated three months after the contract start date. The in
section 3 and 4 of this contract defined duties of the student do also apply for conditionally-enrolled students. In
particular, do the regular tuition fees apply. If the student fails to submit the university entrance qualification or other
documents, which are necessary for the enrolment, correctly until exmatriculation, the obligation to pay the tuition
fees of the first three months exists.
2.2. Changes to the duration of the contract (change of model of studies)
A change in the duration of the contract requires the consent of both parties. A change to another model of studies
listed on our website is possible and will be conducted after a written request is submitted with a three months’
notice to the end of the full month with regard to the start of the contract. The fees, which have been paid until the
requested change to another model of study was submitted, will be taken fully into account. There will be no refund
of partially or fully paid fees. In consideration of the prescribed period, changing the model of study is possible
multiple times. A change of the model of study is possible during the contract duration which is defined on page 1.
During the revocation period, a change to another model of study is possible at any time and without adherence to
the period after the submission of the request. The student will be notified of the effects on his/her studies and the
2.3. Changes to the duration of the contract (change of study programme)
A change of the study programme within the distance learning is possible after a written request is submitted with
one month’ notice to the end of the full month with regard to the start of the study and requires the consent of IUBH.
In order to change the study programme, fees to do so will apply. During the revocation period a change to another
study programme is possible at any time free of charge and without adherence to the period after the submission of
the request. The student will be notified of the effects on his/her studies and the corresponding contract.
2.4. Possibility of change of study mode
The student can request to switch from the distance learning programme into “on campus” study mode by applying
in a written form three months before the start of the following on campus semester at IUBH. To be allowed to start
the “on campus” semester a successful visa application and at least 5 ECTS in the enrolled programme need to be
completed. Additional tuition and related charges may apply in the event of students making any changes to their
study programme. For more information about the specific programmes and the associated charges, students are
directed to the IUBH webpage.
2.5. Regular termination of contract
The contract may be terminated with one month’ notice to the end of the full month with regard to the start of the
study. The termination must be in text form (e.g. Email).
2.6. Immediate termination of contract
The right to an immediate termination of the contract for a reasonable cause remains unaffected. Important, justified
causes for the student to qualify for immediate termination particularly include proven, unexpected unemployment,
life-threatening illnesses as well as the death of a student. A change in the study programme, relocation, failed
exams, financial or family reasons are not justified causes for immediate termination.
If admission to the study programme expires, is revoked or cancelled after the conclusion of the contract, the student
can terminate without observing the two weeks' notice period.
Justified causes for the IUBH to qualify for immediate termination particularly include breaches against the IUBH’s
examination rules, a student’s criminal actions at the expense of the IUBH, or if it is foreseeable, that a necessary
(re)accreditation or admission of the study programme is not granted.
2.7. Leave of absence
In the case of illness or for other proven personal reasons, students may apply for a leave of absence semester for a
period of six months. The leave of absence can take place at the beginning of the second semester at the earliest,
that is six months after the study start.
In exceptional cases the leave of absence during the first six months after the study start is possible.
The bilateral rights and obligations of this contract lapse in this case for the duration of the leave of absence. The
obligation to pay the total tuition fees in accordance to section 3.3. remains after the granting of the leave of
absence to the student. If a six months’ leave of absence is granted to the student, the monthly rates stated on page
1 of this contract must be paid beyond the agreed duration of the contract until the total amount of the monthly fees
stated on page 1 are paid in full.
The application for a leave of absence of six months can be carried out with two weeks’ notice before the intended
start of the leave of absence and must be in text form. The study contract cannot be terminated during a granted
leave of absence. When applying for a leave of absence, the “Information for a leave of absence” and/or the
"Information for a leave of absence due to maternity leave or parental leave" becomes an integral part of the
distance learning contract.

programme, the teaching contract ends without having to be terminated. In this case the student will be

used for this period and exams can still be taken without any additional costs, if at this point of time the payable
monthly fees agreed upon on page 1 were paid in full already. After these months, the student may request in writing
that the contract is extended, subject to a charge. If the student does not submit an application in time, (s)he will be
The IUBH may reject the application for a contract extension in justified cases.
