What are the contents of the Programme?

Courses are organized in the following blocks: work, organization and personnel psychology; methodology course; an intensive “winter school”; master’s thesis; professional stage; professional report. The same blocks are taught at each university of the WOP-P Consortium. 

Which is the language policy?

English is the only language that is compulsory to be a candidate for the WOP-P Master. The WOP-P Master has three language tracks: full in English (at the Universities of Valencia and Bologna); combination of English and Spanish (University of Barcelona); and combination of English and Portuguese (University of Coimbra). 

How is the mobility scheme?

The student applicant should indicate his/her preference for Home (mobility 1) and Host (mobility 2) European universities.  As general rule, the Erasmus Mundus compulsory requirement regarding mobility is that the student must study at least two periods of 30 ECTS credits in two universities from two different European countries. 

Apart from the compulsory mobility period, additional voluntary mobility is possible during the second year, and a call will be open each year to visit a non-European University. This additional mobility must be first agreed by the Coordinating Committee. The Winter School is a special two-weeks period where all students of the Consortium are in the same place for an internship.

The WOP-P Coordinating Committee decides on the mobility scheme considering the student’s preferences, language fluency, and balance between the groups of students that start in parallel. 

How is the admission procedure?

The admission examination consists of an interview (commonly via Skype) to be held from February 2019, focused on:

  • Basic Knowledge of Psychology; Social Psychology; Psychology of Work, Organizations and Human Resources; Research Methodology
  • English language skills

Applicants need to provide other documents (application form, CV, cover letters). The final ranking will be communicated by the Coordinating University (University of Valencia).

How is the tuition fee?

Residents of Italy should pay 3500 euros per academic year. Fees and participation costs include insurance costs, administration costs required by the universities to register students, university I.D. cards, the student’s record management and delivery of diplomas according to the procedure established in the Consortium. Transportation, lodging, meals and incidentals are not included.
