Every kind of interaction in a community is based on communication. In this context, communication is a complex process conveyed both verbally and non-verbally – through our facial expressions and gestures. Economic actors increasingly rely on the insights of psychology to create an optimal business and work environment for employees. Because of this a psychology bachelor's degree is in high demand and is becoming increasingly important in the digital age.

That is why it is important to us that everyone who is interested in the bachelor's degree programme can study at IU International University – completely without NC and waiting semesters.

The aim of the part-time degree programme in psychology is to focus on scientific work and research.

The psychology content of your part-time degree programme is oriented towards practice. The programme focuses on clinical psychology with an attractive range of courses. Furthermore, you will learn methodological skills in the area of empirical scientific research. In the 5th semester, you will gain essential practical experience through a vocational internship.

The psychology content in your Bachelor's degree programme is modular, which means that you study based on subject areas that are divided into so-called "modules". Within these modules, there is sometimes an introductory course and an in-depth course that systematically prepare you for the completion of the module. You will receive ECTS points (European Credit Transfer System) for each successful completion, which document your achievements. These ECTS points are internationally comparable and of course, recognised.

Please note: due to the fact that the study programmes offered on this website are in German, all of the information material and communications will be in the German language, and not in English.

To obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, you must complete a practical project of 300 hours as part of your degree programme. You can start your practical project once you successfully complete the module “Introduction to Social Science Statistics”. Additionally, the seminar “Experimental Research” in the fourth semester takes place in parts as a face-to-face event in a PC laboratory environment. This seminar will be offered for the first time from autumn 2021 and has a scope of 5 ETCS. In the seminar, you plan an experiment after theoretical familiarisation, carry it out and evaluate it. Since special equipment is required for the implementation, we offer you the seminar in suitable settings for conducting experiments.

If you have completed an apprenticeship, advanced training, subject-specific work experience or even a previous degree, you have the opportunity to have these credits recognised. With the recognition of your previous academic achievements, you not only save valuable time, but also money - a total of 30 euros per recognised ECTS point.

For some training occupations and further training courses, there are already blanket recognition applications for you. In the following overview, you can select your training/continuing education and check how many ECTS points can be credited to you. Here you will find a selection of courses:

Votes for Part-Time studies

“My dream has always been to work in the medical field and to work intensively with people. In the professional field of psychology, the clinical area appeals to me the most. I therefore find subjects such as biopsychology, differential personality psychology and emotions particularly exciting.“
