At the Interface of Nature and Society
The programmes offered by the Institute prepare students for professions in the field of natural resources and environmental systems. They are based on specific subject areas and offer a high degree of individualisation in terms of learning paths. The programme is enriched by modern teaching and learning approaches, the use of digital platforms, guided self-study and international exchange opportunities.
IUNR Learning strategy 2020 – 2023
The current learning strategy is strongly influenced by digital transformation. This requires a change in the current competence profiles, new forms of teaching and a modern infrastructure. Nevertheless, our focus remains on the students. We want to ensure that our graduates are able to integrate quickly into the world of work, and therefore put significant emphasis on a close relationship between the study programme and professional practice. At the same time, we allow our students to tailor their studies to suit their individual situations - our flexible study models provide them with the freedom that they need.
