Our curriculum is based on the requirements of EuroPsy (certification system of the European Federation of Psychologists' Associations, EFPA). This means that students - after completing a wide range of professional qualification measures, of which the study program is one - can later acquire the EuroPsy certificate, which certifies appropriate professional competencies throughout Europe.

 

The study program can be started in the winter and summer semester. In both cases, students have access to the same study content in the basic, methods and application subjects. Differences exist, however, in the structure of the timetable. The courses are attended together with older (earlier) and younger (later enrolled) fellow students, so that the students can encourage and support each other.
