  • Special features regarding teaching
    Teaching at our institute is structured with a focus on research and practical application. Students are involved in ongoing research projects at an early stage and have the opportunity to undergo practical training during the bachelor’s degree. We offer our students a variety of specialisation options which allow them to pursue their individual interests. Affiliated with this are the postgraduate courses in Psychological Psychotherapy and Paediatric and Adolescent Psychotherapy. An outpatient psychotherapy clinic is part of the institute.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The degree course can therefore be structured in such a way that stays abroad and overseas work placements can be combined. The International Office helps with organisation, and the eligibility of the credits gained abroad is checked ahead of time. In addition, international professorial partnerships are in place which students can benefit from.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    All seminar rooms are equipped with modern presentation and video technology. Students have access to laboratories, computer workstations, scanners and plotters. Due to the research focuses of the individual departments, we also offer a broad range of technical equipment including driving simulator, eye-tracker, biofeedback device, mobile EEG and special software for interaction analysis, emotion detection and voice analysis which students can experiment with in seminars and research groups, in their final theses as well as in their roles as tutors and academic assistants.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    The predominant projects in Occupational and Organisational Psychology are on skill measurement and development, career & coaching, team & leadership and organisational development. Current research projects in clinical psychology are in the fields of partnership and family, body awareness, addiction and its consequences and prevention of abuse. Transport Psychology deals with the strain and demands of driving, driver assistance systems and causes of accidents. In legal psychology, questions of gender knowledge, feelings of shame and guilt and the psychophysiology of lying are examined.
  • Support for founders
    The Technology Transfer Office provides advice and support with business start-ups.
  • Other special features
    It is very important for us that our students have good initial study phase. During the first study semester students find out all about the psychology degree at Braunschweig and have the opportunity to get to know each other, student tutors from higher semesters and our lecturers. This introduction has been regarded as the best event for new students for years (according to surveys of all participants). The overall organisation of the course always receives positive ratings.
