Bachelor of Science in Psychology

How can I find out whether or not I am suited for studying psychology?

  • Search the web: Take a close look at the curricula and course descriptions of different psychology study programmes. You might as well be interested in the Study Guide (German only) published by The German Psychological Society. This should help you getting a clearer view of what studying psychology entails in terms of both contents and requirements.
  • Test your aptitude yourself: A number of universities offer an online self-test for prospective students. If you have the necessary German language skills, the list of links compiled by the Leibniz Institute for Psychology Information (ZPID) might prove helpful.
  • Read scientific literature: Do not wait for your studies to start to have a look at the fundamental literature of the field you intend to study.
    • One standard reference work would be: Gerrig, R.J. (2018). Psychologie (21. Auflage). Pearson Studium.
    • A former BAP student has published the following textbook: Schmithüsen, F. (2015). Lernskript Psychologie. Die Grundlagenfächer kompakt. Heidelberg: Springerverlag. For more information on this book, click here.
  • Talk to psychologists: Ask them about their work routine, but as well about their experiences during their studies.
  • Do an internship/work placement in a relevant field from a psychological point of view: Find an internship in an institution or organisation which employs psychologists. Although you might not be in direct contact with them, you will have the opportunity to make professional contacts and gain insights into their work.

How can I assess my language skills?

Under “Language level”, you will find a table which allows you to assess your language skills according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages here.

You should have at least a C1 level in German according to this table if you want to complete the BAP successfully. On top of that, you should have at least a B2 level in French and English. Please note that these indications serve as a guideline – your language skills must be documented (either by your school leaving certificate or by language certificates)

In case you are still unsure whether your language skills will be sufficient, please contact us.
