Family, Work & Study:

possible with a flexible part-time study program.
INU as an online university also offers flexible study options for working professionals looking for something new. Courses such as psychology, business psychology or business administration can be completed digitally from home on a part-time basis. Studies, family obligations and work can thus be reconciled.

These are your advantages in studying at INU


Our slogan is “study, work and travel” – but what exactly does that mean?
It is the great freedom in terms of time and location that makes studying at our online college special.
Multi-day excursions abroad, multi-week language courses abroad or a whole semester abroad?

Lass dir das nicht entgehen, an der INU ist das möglich!
Ein Work & Travel-Trip nach Neuseeland oder zum Surfen nach Hawaii – und dabei (weiter)studieren? Mit dem extrem flexiblen Konzept der INU kein Problem!

Aber auch wenn du schon berufstätig bist, viel reisen musst, eine Familie hast oder Angehörige pflegst, profitierst du von der Möglichkeit der sehr freien Zeiteinteilung: Du studierst, wenn es dein Zeitfenster zulässt, und gehst so deinen ganz persönlichen Weg zum Erfolg:
Design your Success!
