Special features regarding teachingThe institute places a particular emphasis on ensuring that students actively participate as early on as possible in processes that are important for psychological research and practice. For this purpose, for example, a large number of project seminars are offered in which students can actively participate in the development, application and evaluation of psychological processes. The tools necessary for this are available in various forms (hormone lab, video lab, outpatient clinic for psychological psychotherapy, technology for managing behaviour in experiments, see below).

Special features regarding the international orientationA large number of international (e.g. EU-funded) research projects demonstrate the institute's involvement in a whole series of transnational research collaborations. Students are also systematically supported in this respect in order to expand their subject-specific skills and broaden their range of experience by gaining relevant experience abroad. Alongside the academically essential collaboration with Anglo-American nations, the institute also collaborates intensively with (eastern) European, Asian, Arab and South American countries.
