As the University's mission reflects its commitment to maintaining a multicultural balance and other forms of diversity within its student body, the general entry requirements may not reflect the individual minimum standards set for applicants from differing educational systems and geographic areas.
Whenever possible the University seeks to establish requirements which are accessible and realistic given the country of origin of the applicant. An example would be an applicant's reasonable access to testing centers if standardized test are required or the requirement of transcripts and grades when an educational system issues only exam results.

A University degree program is a substantial investment that needs to be carefully evaluated. IUM offers a number of scholarships to assist you in funding your studies. In addition, some of the best financing options available to prospective students may also be found in their country of origin or residence.
Please be aware that all IUM program acceptance criteria are based on merit and we do not take your financial situation into account when making our admissions decisions. Applying for funding will not affect you chances of being admitted to your program of choice but the competition for funding within each program can vary from year to year.
While some of our students receive aid from the University in the form of scholarships and awards, through sources in their home countries, or through sponsorship by their company, most use personal savings or take out loans in order to finance their tuition and living expenses while at IUM.
To help assess the financial obligations required to attend IUM you must first acquaint yourself with the program tuition and fees and an estimate of living expenses. While the Office of Admissions will do its best to assist you in meeting your financial needs, the responsibility of financing your degree ultimately lies with you.
