Major global changes are creating new challenges for psychology today, impacting both individuals and society as a whole. This scientific field requires professionals who are trained to provide answers to problems such as eating disorders, school bullying and tech-related issues, such as cyberbullying, nomophobia and Internet dependence, among others.

Our methodology focuses on the simulation of real clinical cases in order for students to develop the skills needed to become future psychologists and understand human behaviour.

Advanced technology

You will be able to use innovative therapeutic tools, such as virtual reality, with which you can intervene in all kinds of pathologies such as phobias and neuropsychological disorders.

Professional interships

More than 600 hours of internships over the course of the programme. Starting in the third year, you will visit external centres to observe clinical practice with real patients. You can select up to four rotations.

Practise as a general health psychologist

At our University, you have the opportunity to pursue a Master's in General Health Psychology, which is a prerequisite for accreditation as a General Health Psychologist.

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
