Where better for students to study mind and behaviour than in two of Europe’s most historic, beautiful and culturally-rich cities?
Munich is an international-renowned city that has developed into a sophisticated centre with a wide range of historical and cultural activities. An inspiring and diverse array of modern architecture and historic buildings combine to create a fascinating and popular city. As students, you will experience what Munich has to offer through a packed programme of visits; the city also provides the perfect environment for your Psychological Experiment. We ensure that every moment spent here is both enjoyable and educational.
This gracious city, straddling the Danube, has been at the heart of European affairs since the dawn of time – it has been home to Freud as well as countless composers. Today Vienna is full of charm, beauty, cultural heritage and interest. Students will visit a university and many key psychological museums and landmarks to further enhance their understanding of the subject through real-life experiences.
You will be based at accommodation in the heart of both Munich and Vienna on a half-board basis, close to both cities’ many attractions.
