Dresden International University
Dresden International University was established as a subsidiary university of Dresden University of Technology in April 2003. Currently, more than 2,800 students are registered in 41 courses of studies.
The innovative courses of DIU offer clearly structured qualifications on a high academic level. The aims of these programmes are the improvement of academic knowledge and the acquisition of additional practical skills. DIU's Bachelor's and Master's programmes follow an interdisciplinary approach and can be completed either as full-time or part-time studies. Classes are held in English or German.
Specifically designed curricula for international students are clearly structured and offer a wide range of courses. Students are thus able to acquire a sound and diversified knowledge during seminars and workshops.
Given the interdisciplinary profile of DIU, every course comprises aspects of several academic disciplines. Therefore, the modules of a course deal with all aspects of a specific topic relevant for its comprehensive processing.
About 30% of DIU's students are foreigners from 30 nations. The intercultural competence of the students and staff, language training and international community life are some of the factors of DIU's internationalisation. Since 2003, DIU has intensified its international activities in order to attract foreign students to study in Dresden.
The enhancement of students' qualifications and competencies with a diverse and continuously expanding range of courses is connected to the requirements of the international job market.
Since 2011, a joint campus in Dresden's World Trade Centre has brought DIU and two further educational institutions - EIPOS and TUDIAS - together. They share infrastructure and back office services. They also make joint use of the available seminar and meeting rooms and lecture theatre.
