We offer our students a broad orientation on psychology in the three-year programme as we cover the basics and all subdisciplines.

If you are thinking about taking our International Bachelor in Psychology you are no doubt interested in people's behaviour. You are aware that psychology is a science and you have an inquisitive and open mind. You do not take opinions for granted just because they sound plausible and are held by a large group of people. Your English is excellent, you have a feeling for language, and enjoy studying and reading about all aspects of psychology. You are looking forward to becoming a psychologist: a person who looks at things scientifically and from a distance; is observant and a good listener; is able to think systematically and reason logically.
