    International Students

    Welcome! Willkommen! Welkom! Bienvenue! Bienvenido! Benvenuto!

    Dear Erasmus or exchange students,

    thank you for your interest in Work & Organizational Psychology at the University of Würzburg!

    If you plan to attend courses in Work & Organizational Psychology, please note the following general information:

    • Lecture “Arbeits- und Organisationspsychologie (Introduction to work and organizational psychology”):
      We offer a two-term long lecture on the introduction to work & organizational psychology (given in German). In the fall term, topics of the lecture range from personnel to organizational psychology (e.g., personnel selection, human resource development, leadership), and in the spring term, topics are focused on work and economic psychology (e.g., work design, motivation, job stress). The course is graded with a multiple-choice exam (in German) (6 ECTS) about the contents of both terms. For international students who only stay for one semester, we offer the possibility to do an oral exam (in English language) on the contents of both semesters to earn 6 ECTS. International students can prepare for the exam with an English textbook. Please contact the lecturer for further information.
    • Seminare der Arbeit- und Organisationspsychologie 1&2”:
      Important note: You must enroll in both seminars to get evaluated and get 6 ECTS
      • Seminare der Arbeits- und Organisationspsychologie 1: You can find one English seminar group for Seminare der Arbeits- und Organisationspsychologie 1. This seminar is called "Recovery from work-related stress". We recommend this seminar for Erasmus students. There will not be an exam in this course, but successfully participating will grant you a bonus for your final grade.
      • Seminare der Arbeits- und Organisationspsychologie 2:  In this seminar, you will get evaluated and receive your final grade for taking part in both seminars. The seminar is held in German, but most of the literature is in English. International students are welcome to attend the seminar regularly. However, attendance at the seminar is not required for international students, and they will receive English literature to prepare for an oral exam at the end of the semester. The seminar "Flexilibisierung der Arbeitselt" by Mona Pohlner is open for international students this semester.
