Courses in Lüneburg (virtual)

your campus Lüneburg (virtual)

Lüneburg may not be one of the largest student towns in northern Germany, but it is definitely one of the most diverse. With around 300 cafés, bars and restaurants, the city centre has the highest density of bars in Germany and offers everything you need for student life.

If the city is a little too small for you, you can reach Hamburg's main railway station in less than an hour by regional train. Whether you commute or make Lüneburg your home is up to you. Our virtual courses allow you maximum flexibility, while you can put your practical knowledge into practice with your partner in Lüneburg. In addition, we organise two events each year, such as a semester kick-off event or a summer party, and smaller local meetings within the quarter, where you can get to know your fellow students in person.

That's what our students say

“The weekly change at IU appealed to me in contrast to the three-monthly rhythm because then there is no rut and you can also build up a life in a city.“
