Are you curious about what makes people move? Always trying to understand someone else’s behavior? In this course we will touch up on the basic theories within psychology that examine and clarify human behavior. We will discuss the most interesting experiments within the field and explore the implications of these studies for our understanding of ourselves. We will discuss the variety of specializations and directions psychology has to offer. And most excitingly, we will transform into psychology researchers ourselves by understanding the methodology behind experiments and designing an experiment ourselves. Ready for a real challenge?

Fee info

EUR 230: "I want to pay the full cost of the Discover experience. It includes the costs during the academy (accommodation, food, materials), travel costs for tutors, marketing, administration and preparatory meetings. Without these expenses, we wouldn't be able to offer a diverse range of high quality courses."
EUR 170: "I prefer to pay only the costs during the academy: accomodation, food and materials."


We understand that people in different countries, and different people within each country, have very different ability to pay the participation fee. We, therefore, expect to offer partial scholarships to up to 80% of participants.
