The WOP-P Master aims to provide excellent experts in Work, Organizational, and Personnel Psychology (WOP-P) for an increasingly globalized socio-economic context. Two general employability itineraries are considered: as a practitioner, and as a researcher. For more information, please visit: General description
The main compulsory admission criteria are:
A Degree in Psychology (i.e., Bachelor of 3, 4 or 5 years)
A full-time commitment to the two-year programme and, for granted students, further commitments as required by the scholarship conditions
Fluency in English (Level B2 under the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
Common criteria and procedures related to admission and selection of students apply to all candidates.
You may consult other compulsory admission criteria considered in application evaluation here: Admission and evaluation criteria for students
The procedure is the same. If you apply before the deadline established for the Erasmus+ scholarships, we will understand that you apply for both the scholarships as well as the WOP-P Master. If you apply after this deadline, you will only be applying to the WOP-P Master. For more information, please visit: Deadlines for student application
The EMJMD student scholarships include participation costs (tuition fees, full insurance coverage, and any other mandatory costs related to student participation in the course), a contribution to student travel and accommodation costs, and an allowance for the entire duration of the EMJMD study programme. For more information, please visit: The EMJMD student scholarships
The WOP-P Master enables two general employability itineraries: as a practitioner, and as a researcher (e.g., later pursuing a Ph.D. programme). We have implemented an employability survey among WOP-P Master alumni. A total of 112 alumni, from 35 countries (Europe, North America, Africa, South America, Asia, and the Middle East) participated voluntarily. For more information, please visit: Employability
It is very important that you know the difference between partner and programme country students, as fees and Erasmus+ scholarships apply differently accordingly. To distinguish between partner and programme country students, please visit: Are you a partner or a programme country student?
Fees are different for students who are residents in programme or partner countries. For more information, please visit: Fees
The University of Valencia as the Coordinating Institution issues a Joint Diploma on behalf of the Universities of Barcelona, Bologna, Coimbra, and Valencia, and a Joint Diploma Supplement with specific information about the participation of the student in the master. The University of Bologna also awards its own national Diploma and Diploma Supplement to students who have enrolled for at least one semester (minimum 30 ECTS credits) in this university. For the remaining students, the University of Bologna will validate the Joint Diploma issued by the University of Valencia upon request.
The model of competencies to be acquired by the students considers both the competencies of the Specialist EuroPsy Certificate in WOP Psychology and research competencies. For more information, please visit: Competences
The courses of the WOP-P Master are:
Courses related to Work, Organizational, and Personnel Psychology, as well as methodological, research, and free-content courses. For more information, please visit: Academic subjects and principles
The Winter School or Joint Intensive Learning Unit. For more information, please visit: The Winter School
The WOP-P Master takes place simultaneously in the different European universities of the Consortium. Each year, non-European universities arrange professional internships for a selection of students. For more information, please visit: The role of partners
In addition to the local teaching staff and scholars under the Erasmus+ programme, international guest lecturers from different countries (e.g., UK, Netherlands, USA) commonly participate in the program. For more information, please visit: Teaching staff
The student must attend at least two periods of 30 ECTS credits in two universities –known as ‘Home’ and ‘Host’ universities– from two different European countries. The Home University is the university of enrolment where the student starts the program. The Host University is the university where the student spends the compulsory mobility period during the second semester. During the selection process, each candidate is asked to select a Home and Host university of their preference, which will be considered, among other criteria, for the final distribution of students among the four universities of the Consortium. These criteria consider student preference and language fluency, as well as a balanced distribution among partner institutions. Granted students must complete a period of study in two universities from two different European countries different from their country of residence.
Additional voluntary mobility may be arranged during the second year, and a competitive call will be open each year to visit a non-European University for the practicum. This additional mobility must be first agreed by the Coordinating Committee.
Finally, the Winter School is a two-week in-residence period when all students of the Consortium meet for an intensive learning experience.
Please see: Mobility scheme
English is the only compulsory language. The WOP-P Master has three language itineraries: entirely in English (at the Universities of Valencia and Bologna); a combination of English and Spanish (University of Barcelona); and a combination of English and Portuguese (University of Coimbra).
Either the Coordinating Office of the WOP-P Master or the Insurance Company will send the insurance policy to your postal address should you need a visa. In addition, both the Coordinating Institution (University of Valencia) and your Home University (for mobility 1) will provide you with an acceptance letter confirming your admission to our master and to our universities. For more information, please visit: Visa
Once the student is accepted in the master they will receive the Handbook for Students with useful information about visa and residence permits requirements, socio-cultural aspects, accommodation, cost of living, etc. to ease the welcoming process and later mobilities.
After the selection process, two rankings of both partner and programme applicants are established. The first applicants shortlisted in each ranking will be offered a scholarship depending on the number of scholarships granted in that academic year. If an applicant refuses the scholarship, it could be offered to the following applicant in the ranking (reserve list).
