6. Soft Skills

Degrees in Psychology include this programme of emotionala nd social skills so students will learn to adapt to their environment, work well with others, carry out their duties responsibly and achieve their personal and professional goals. Over the course of the four years of the degree, transversal seminars and workshops will be carried out.

7. Internal student researcher

With the creation of this role, students may support research and apply their knowledge, whether in university teams or in health centres, as already happens in several hospitals around Catalonia.

  • international collaboration activities
  • academic exchanges for faculty and students
  • participation in international research projects
  • short or long stays in foreign universities
11. Complete programme
