Flexible studying at INU
The online university INU in Cologne offers the possibility to combine online courses, the classic student life on campus and stays abroad. Students can pursue exciting majors like psychology, business psychology, or business administration, find like-minded people on campus or online, and explore the world through semesters abroad.

These are the advantages of studying at INU


Our motto is “Study, Work & Travel” – but what exactly does that mean?
It is the great independence of time and space that makes studying at our online university special.
Excursions abroad lasting several days, language courses abroad lasting several weeks or a complete semester abroad?

Don’t miss out, it’s possible at INU!
A work & travel trip to New Zealand or surfing in Hawaii – and study (further) at the same time? No problem with INU’s extremely flexible concept!

But even if you are already working, have to travel a lot, have a family or care for relatives, you benefit from the possibility of very free time management: You study when your time window allows it and thus follow your own personal path to success:
Design your Success!
