Why UAO CEU?

1. Employability

86.7% of our students find work after finishing their studies, 5 percentage points above the average for Catalan universities (AQU employability survey 2017).

2. Course satisfaction

87.7% of our students are satisfied with their Psychology studies, the second-highest level out of all Catalan universities (AQU 2017), 14 points higher than the Catalan university average.

3. People and organisation management

A qualification that develops personal leadership skills to manage teams and be successful in business thanks to excellent people management.

4. Methodology

A teaching model based on practical and individualised training that allows students to link theoretical knowledge with professional practice through real internships in companies, schools, hospitals and daycare centres, as well as workshops and practical seminars. More than 15 years of experience forming experts in psychology.

It promotes an active, entrepreneurial attitude among students, like the creation of Grupo Psykhé. The group organises the Annual Day of Psychology Students, in which, through different subject areas, students present a project or study they have created during their degree to the public. This reinforces early research work and valuable experience for public presentations.

5. Therapeutic Assistance Unit

Students in their third and fourth year of the Psychology Degree attend psychopathology sessions from the Official Master’s Degree in General Health Psychology. Taught in UAO CEU's Therapeutic Assistance Unit at the Sagrat Cor University Hospital (part of the Quirónsalud group), it gives students the chance to attend and supervise clinical sessions with real patients.

6. 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.

7. Optional mention

Specialised training in the most high-demand areas of professional psychology:

  • clinical and health psychology
  • developmental and educational psychology
8. CEU ePlus skills programme

A teaching model based on practical, personalised education that links theory to professional practice through case studies and real experiences, workshops and practical seminars.

It includes visits to national and international companies and production centres through internships.

9. Progressive International Development

A new plan that encourages students from all degrees to think internationally from their first year to their fourth, with:

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

The Official Master’s Degree in General Health Psychology prepares students to work in this qualified and regulated profession as a private practitioner or as part of the healthcare system. The degree can be further enhanced with the Doctorate in Health Science and Technology.
