For bachelor students

One of the exciting and educational benefits of being a student at FPN, is the option to take electives at an FPN partner university abroad during the 3rd year of the Bachelor in Psychology programme. For this purpose, the IRO has set up partnerships with more than 80 universities across the world. IRO is there to assist students in this process, so that you can enjoy your stay abroad to the fullest!

During the electives period in year 3, you also have the option to take part in the Research-Based Learning (MaRBLe) project abroad (12 ECTS), or a practical research internship abroad (6 ECTS).
