Our students have completed their interships in more than 145 organizations across Slovakia. They were able to find placements in all regional towns and in some district towns (for example in Piešťany, Veľký Krtíš, Žilina). Our students also have an opportunity to pursue an internship abroad through the Erasmus+ programme.

Internships are a required component of our programme. They allow our students to acquire professional experience that distinguishes them from students of other programmes. 96% of our graduates find an employment within half a year of programme completion and we believe this is also thanks to the skills and professional connections gained at internship placements. Watch the director of our Institute discuss what makes our programme special and in what fields are our graduates likely to work.

Here are a few examples of organizations and companies where our students completed their internships:

  • School psychology – different primary and secondary schools, the Research Institute of Child Psychology and Pathopsychology
  • Work psychology – Dell, IBM, Maxman, PWC, Proplusco
  • Internship in research – Slovak Academy of Sciences, the Research Institute of Social Psychology
  • Counselling psychology – different Centres for children and families, Centres  of pedagogical and psychological counselling and prevention, Homes of Social Services, Treatment and Education Centres, different non-profit organizations (e.g., IPčko, Gateway to Life)
  • Clinical psychology – various hospitals (e.g., in BB, BA, ZA), Philipp Pinel Psychiatric Hospital

“I chose this course because I was interested in studying psychology however, I was not sure about the exact orientation of my latter studies. This programme enabled me to choose from a larger variety of possibilities – from human resources to clinical psychology. So far, it has been interesting to explore the fundamental topics of this course in neurophysiology, in history of psychology and in general and developmental psychology.”


Greta Bosma

“I have loved every part of this course and I am so glad I decided to come! The content is so interesting and the conversations we have really elevate our seminars, giving us a new perspective on how psychology can be used not only in research, but in every day life. The way my teachers have adapted to online learning has been amazing, and I have gained many insights into what current psychologists use to share their research, meaning I can really be engaged with all parts of psychology – the practical as well as the theory!”
