Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience

The Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN) is an international faculty with students and staff from diverse cultural backgrounds who are linked by their shared curiosity about the human brain. This curiosity drives us to explore the broad field of psychology from a biological and cognitive perspective. By using the Problem-Based Learning method of teaching we encourage a similar curiosity in our students by handing them the tools to discover the world of the human brain.
