Full course description
Every student must have participated as a test subject in an FPN scientific research as part of the bachelor's exam. Did you start studying psychology in 2010, 2011 or 2012, than you have to act as a test subject for a total of 15 hours. If you started in 2013 or later you must act as a test subject for a total of 20 hours. The Research Participation is included in the overview of year 1, but does not count towards the 60 credits you must obtain in year 1. The corresponding ECTS credit will only be awarded in year 3. Participation in experimental studies is not guaranteed for 2nd and 3rd year students, due to too much prior knowledge. Furthermore, the sign-off Research Participation hours must have been obtained if you want to continue the programme abroad at the start of the 3rd academic year. Students are encouraged to complete the Research Participation in their first year. Therefore, 5 hours will be waived if you have acted as a test subject for 15 hours in your first academic year (students from cohort 2013 onwards) If you have acted as a test subject for less than 15 hours in your first academic year, you will have to complete the full 20 hours in other academic years of the bachelor's programme. If you started psychology in 2016 or later, there is the additional restriction that a maximum of seven hours of the total number of hours required can originate from online studies.
