Our study programs are designed to inspire students to think in an inquiring, analytical and creative way. We want to promote independent judgment, strengthen critical self-confidence and create an atmosphere in which students see themselves as active shapers of their own future. Our students should not only become experts in their field, but also visionary thinkers who take responsibility and actively shape social change.

The study programs at NU combine digital skills such as digital learning, digital collaboration and digital literacy with transformative skills such as innovation and change and traditional skills such as problem-solving skills, creativity, intercultural communication and entrepreneurial action & initiative. Projects and practical assignments provide numerous opportunities to apply and train these skills throughout your studies.
