"I am convinced that I have made the right decisions and that with the help of the University of Europe for Applied Sciences I will find my way into the professional world.

The question of the right degree programme also occupied Franka for a long time. In the end, the Hamburg native decided on Business Psychology (B.Sc.). The 20-year-old revealed to us first-hand why she is completely satisfied with it.

"The question of what and where I wanted to study occupied me for a long time. With Business Psychology (B.Sc.), my choice fell on a relatively young degree programme that is made up of elements of business administration and psychology. Because of this diversity, there are numerous possible directions in which my studies can lead me.

At the University of Europe for Applied Sciences, I have the feeling that I made the right choice. We have a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere on campus. This makes learning and everyday study much easier. In addition, wishes and suggestions are always listened to, as the students' commitment is welcomed and supported.
