As the MA Psychology focusing on Organisation is a new program, we have no information yet on the setup of the student body. However, as one of the programs of its kind in Berlin, the sibling program MA Psychology English track attracts students from across the globe who want to study psychology in Berlin.

In comparison to the IPU Berlin’s other courses, the MA Psychology English track has a much more international profile, and one cohort could include students from every continent. This course is also smaller than its German-language counterpart, which allows students to have much closer contact with the teaching staff, who are just as international as its students.
This diverse makeup of students and instructors provides exposure to a wide range of cultures, languages, backgrounds, and ways of thinking about psychology, which only serves to enrich the overall study experience.

The IPU Berlin is located right in the heart of Berlin. The campus, which can be found in the Moabit district, is located directly next to the river Spree, where you will find students and families alike sitting next to the water when the weather is nice.

Thanks to its central location, the IPU Berlin is in walking distance from several forms of public transportation, which makes it easy to reach campus from districts that are farther away. A short walk away, one can find the Berlin-famous Tiergarten and Bellevue Palace, while shopping, restaurants and bars can be found in the immediate vicinity.

As part of university life, the student council offers a wide range of university groups and organizes evening events such as concerts or parties. Students also have the opportunity to attend evening lectures and events sponsored by the university.

It is natural that many questions arise before beginning a study program. In order to address these questions – and maybe some you haven’t thought of yet – the IPU Berlin offers regular info sessions for individual programs and for all prospective students. At these events, university representatives and current students can talk with you about your application, career goals, the IPU experience, and much more. The information sessions also include representatives from the organization Chancen eG, which can help students finance their studies through a so-called reverse generational contract.

You can find upcoming open houses and info sessions (as well as all other events) through our events page.
