External internship rules

Internships are a key component of your training. Acquiring experience after what you have learnt in your degree is the best way to enter the employment market. There are two types of internships: curricular—which are included in your study plan—and extracurricular—which you can do on a voluntary basis.

In order to complete curricular internships in companies, you will need to have 50% of the credits approved and registered before starting your internship. These internships are monitored by the company and the internship coordinator, and interim and final reports are prepared for evaluation.

If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extracurricular internship. You can do them in any academic year, but keep in mind that internships are a formative complement to your studies; therefore, the more knowledge you have acquired throughout your studies, the more you will benefit from the internship experience.

In addition to theoretical training and simulation practice, you will receive practical clinical training from the first academic year in prestigious institutions, including:

  • Psicólogos Sin Fronteras
  • Colegio de Psicoanálisis de Madrid
  • AFA – Asociación de Familiares y Amigos de Enfermos de Alzheimer
  • AFAEMO – Asociación de Familiares y Amigos de Enfermos Mentales de Moratalaz
  • AMAFE – Asociación Madrileña de Amigos y Familiares de Personas con Esquizofrenia
  • Asociación Antares, supporting persons with intellectual disabilities and their families
  • APANEFA – Asociación de Daño Cerebral Sobrevenido de Madrid
  • Apoyo Positivo
  • Asociación Bipolar Madrid
  • Asociación de Educación para la Salud

  • Con o Sin Diván clinical psychology centre
  • Centro Consulta Abierta clinical psychology centre
  • NB Psicología clinical psychology centre

Frequently Asked Questions

Psychology is a profession with different branches of specialisation and fields of work, as well as with several career opportunities in fields as diverse as healthcare, business, education, and research. A licensed/ graduate Psychologist, enrolled in an official order of Psychologists, can practice within different areas. Among them, clinical, educational, organisational, social and community, legal and forensic, physical activity and sports, teaching and research.

Depending on the country in which you expect to develop your professional practice, you may find specific regulatory regimes (e.g., tasks and activities and/or regulated titles, like is the case of clinical and health psychology in Spain).

The degree in Psychology is usually a four-year program with different plans of studies depending on the university to which it belongs. Those who want to work in applied settings such as psychological therapy will generally need to complete a graduate program and get a master's degree in psychology. A master's degree in psychology typically takes two to three years to complete and may require an additional 2-3 years of supervised experience or internship before they can get licensed. Doctoral degrees in psychology, highly specialised and research oriented, can take an additional four to seven years to complete beyond a master’s degree. These time estimates are general and may vary depending on the specific program, institution, and its location.

You can study a psychology degree at colleges and universities, in both public and private universities. You can also study a psychology degree online from a few universities and colleges, which can be a great option if you are unable to attend on-campus classes or prefer online learning.

The specific subjects required for a psychology degree can vary depending on the program and institution, but most programs will require a core set of classes in the field of psychology. Here are some examples of subjects you might take as part of a psychology degree: Introduction to Psychology, Research Methods, Statistics, Developmental Psychology, Social Psychology and Abnormal Psychology. In sum, there is a broad range of subjects you need to take for psychology degree, and you will likely have a lot of flexibility to tailor your education to your interests.
