Go on Exchange @Psychology!

The Department of Psychology at the University of Groningen studies human behaviour from various perspectives. It focuses on the question why people do what they do, both related to “normal” human behaviour and to behaviour that deviates from the norm. This also includes fields of study such as, for example, the human development throughout life, the functioning of the brain and brain disorders, and the relationship between job characteristics and the functioning of employees. Human behaviour, biological structures and environmental factors are the core issues of our study. Our Department of Psychology is specialized in the following areas:

  • industrial and organizational psychology
  • cognitive psychology and psychophysiology
  • clinical neuropsychology
  • clinical psychology
  • developmental psychology
  • social psychology and its applications

Our programs give students a thorough understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of psychology and practical application of theory to everyday life.

Psychology for Exchange students

Exchange students are welcome to follow our courses for one semester. Non-psychology majors can take the one-semester minor "Psychology in Society" which is offered in the autumn semester only. Psychology majors can pick and choose a custom program from our long list of fully English-taught courses.
