- The basic requirement for studying at a university is the so-called university entrance qualification, e.g. the Abitur. This qualification can be obtained in different ways and enables its holder to study either at a university or at a Fachhochschule (university of applied sciences). The entitlements listed below are those valid in Lower Saxony.
Preliminary examination of the university entrance qualification (HZB)
Prospective students who would like to have their university entrance entitlement (HZB) examined prior to applying for enrolment (i.e. university entrance qualifications on the grounds of vocational education and training, entrance qualifications for universities of applied sciences, EU university entrance qualifications acquired outside Germany) can submit their university entrance qualification documents to the University’s Registrar’s Office from the middle of May
The Bachelor's Programme in Psychology at the Georg Elias Müller Institute for Psychology (in following GEMI for short) is a full-time programme primarily directed to the German-speaking region. Fundamentals of psychology are conveyed in the modules Social Psychology, Differential Psychology, General Psychology, Biological Psychology as well as Developmental Psychology. To acquire methodical skills in psychology, the following modules are offered: Introduction to Areas and Research Methods of Psychology, Quantitative Methods I and II, Diagnostic Basics, Diagnostical Procedures, as well as the Empirical-Experimental Internship. Many modules are dedicated to hands-on practice. Courses on educational psychology, business psychology, and clinical psychology and psychotherapy are offered in two modules each and are directly related to future occupational tasks. An optional compulsory section is also offered comprising one in-depth module from the three application subjects as well as two non-psychology optional compulsory modules. The selection of courses allows students to focus on enhancing their knowledge for a certain future field of work. The direct practical reference is demanded in a 12-week internship. Key qualifications are conveyed in all modules, whereby especially the module Development and Presentation of Contents from Science and Practice must be named. In the bachelor's thesis (to be completed within 12 weeks), students show that they have learned to deal with a problem in a special field of psychology, guided by the scientific methods of the subject.
