These are the advantages of your INU degree programme


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?

This is possible at the INU, so don’t miss out!
A work-and-travel trip to New Zealand or to surf in Hawaii – and (continuing) studying while you are there? With the INU’s extremely flexible concept, no problem!

But even if you are already working, have to travel a lot, have a family or care for relatives, you benefit from being able to freely divide your time: You study when your time window allows, traveling your own personal path to success:
Design your Success!
