The first three study plans require students to complete an internship worth 15 credits; this may include internships in institutions, research internships in labs, and practical and theoretical workshops. The fourth study plan (In-depth research in psychology) does not include an internship; instead, students are required to carry out a more significant research project (dissertation and presentation worth 45 credits as opposed to 30 credits). This fourth study plan is aimed at students who are particularly interested in research and may wish to pursue their studies in a PhD programme. Each study plan also requires students to complete various methodological courses.
