Bachelor of Science in Psychology

In contrast to many other universities, the average mark on your final transcript from secondary school is not our first criteria when it comes to admission. In fact, we are more interested in each applicant’s motivation. Therefore, in addition to the usual application documents, we require you to send us a detailed, personal motivation letter as well as a curriculum vitae in tabular form.

Please note: The application documents must not be stapled or copied on both sides.

Step 1: Online registration

If you want to apply for the BAP, you will first have to register online

For applicants from EU countries: If you want to take up your studies in winter semester 2020-2021, you can register online here from 1st March 2019 until 15 June 2020. Once you have filled in the online form, please print it and send it together with your other application documents to until 20 June 2020.

For applicants from non-EU countries: If you wish to begin your studies in  winter semester 2020-2021, you can register online here from 31 January 2020 until 11 Mai 2020. Once you have filled in the online form, please print it and send it together with your other application documents to until  18 May 2020.

Step 2: Letter of motivation

Please make sure that your letter of motivation contains detailed information on the following points. Your letter of motivation should address the following questions:

1. Please describe your school career and your curriculum vitae.

  • What was your school career like? Did it include a specialisation in the final years at secondary school? If so, which? Which subjects did you take at Higher level (as opposed to Standard level)? Please provide details on the course level and the results obtained in mathematics and biology in particular.
  • Have you been working as a volunteer or pursuing a professional activity after successfully completing secondary school (e.g. occupational area, temporary jobs, work placements/internships, “voluntary social year”? If so, what were they? Did any of the activities include working in the social / psychological sector?
  • "How are your language skills in French, German and English?" If available, please enclose language certificates or other documents documenting your level.

2. Please state in detail the reasons for your personal interest in psychology.

  • Why do you plan to embark on an undergraduate course in psychology?
  • What made you want to study psychology?
  • What personal experiences do you already have in this area?
  • What are your personal expectations with regard to studying psychology?
  • What are your personal goals once you have been awarded your bachelor’s degree?
  • What would be your alternatives (e.g. in terms of other places of study or other disciplines)?

3. Please explain what you know about the studies in psychology.

  • "How and where did you try to find out more about study programmes in psychology?“
  • What did you find out during this research?
  • "With respect to the programme, which subjects are you particularly interested in?"
  • In your opinion, what are, in terms of content, the main focuses of the "Bachelor of Science in Psychology" at the University of Luxembourg?

4. To what extent did your research influence your wish to study psychology?

5. What other argument could make your application successful?

  • What else should the selection committee in your opinion know about your wish to study psychology?

The letter of motivation can be written in German or French. It is also possible to submit a bilingual (German / French) or trilingual (German / French / English) letter of motivation.
We do not prescribe a specific number of pages, but it goes without saying that your letter of motivation can hardly be less than two pages long if you give meaningful answers to all the questions asked.
Tip: Your letter of motivation must show, that you made your decision to apply for the BAP based on a clear and comprehensive picture of psychology studies. Under the sub-menu item "Aptitude", we show you how you can inform yourself well about the study of psychology.

Step 3: Interview (does not apply to applicants who have either already been accepted or refused after step 2)

Applicants who have not already been accepted or rejected after step 2 will be invited to an individual, possibly multilingual, selection interview lasting about 30 minutes.

The invitation to the interview will be sent to the email address provided during the online registration. Please enter an email address that you consult regularly - this way you will make sure that you do not miss the invitation to the selection interview. Please also check the spam folder in your e-mail inbox regularly!

The selection interviews will take place in July 2020:

  •     Week 1: 06.07-10.07.2020
  •     Week 2: 13.07.-17.07.2020
  •     Week 3: 20.07.-24.07.2020

Please note that we only offer appointments outside of these three weeks in exceptional, compelling and unforeseeable cases. Holiday trips are not among these exceptions!

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, the application interviews will not take place on site at the Belval campus, but online. We will inform the invited candidates in detail.
