International Bachelor in Psychology

An international field of study that combines heart and mind

Psychology plays a role in every aspect of life and society: in the mental health and wellbeing of people, in education, in recruitment for businesses, in the prevention of accidents, in sports and leisure, in economics and consumer trends, and in the resolution of conflicts between people and countries. Are you interested in people’s behaviour, and would you like to study it? Then becoming a psychologist may be just right for you.
The right choice for you?
