Accreditations & Rankings

We attach great importance to offering our students first-class degree programmes in terms of content and organisation. And as our awards, accreditations and certifications show - we are succesful.


All current study programmes of IUBH are accredited and bear the seal of the German Accreditation Council. Among other things, accreditation certifies that the curricula meet academic standards, that the programmes are structured in such a way as to meet all formal requirements and that the necessary resources are available in the form of qualified staff and sufficient equipment. They facilitate the international recognition of educational qualifications in all 48 states of the Bologna region.
Five of our degree programmes were awarded the FIBAA premium seal. This award certifies the extraordinary quality of these programmes. It also makes the IUBH one of the leading universities in Germany with five or more premium seals.

Science Council

The IUBH has been institutionally accredited without restrictions by the Science Council for 10 years. This is the highest accreditation that can be received in this process.
