  • Emphasis is given on supporting students by making use of the most suitable methods and tools of statistics.

Also,

  • Within the college premises students are provided with two fully equipped psychology laboratories, the Psychometric and Research Lab and the In-house Clinic, where they can take part in several experimental assessments, role plays, simulated sessions etc .

  • School subjects are taught by prominent scientists and professionals in the field of mental health.
  • Psychology students cooperate with students from other sectors within the scope of interdisciplinary groups of intervention.
  • The Aegean College hosts events of great impact, which feature highly acknowledged people in the field of psychology, like psychiatrist-psychoanalyst Dr Matthew Yosafat.
