Student Testimonials

Mindaugas Kraulaidis, 2nd year student:
Studies in Work and Organizational Psychology study programme (WOP) was a quite unexpected choice even for myself. I always planned to go into the health/clinical sphere but because I got an opportunity to join WOP programme straight from the 2nd semester I chose WOP. And I am really happy with this choice; it revealed new options and opportunities for me. I did my internship in the international company and after it, I got an offer to stay and work there (well, not in the same position where I did my internship but still it is a good place to get a working experience).
Speaking about the studies, we had great lecturers and interesting lectures, plus, we had to spend a semester (some of us spent there two semesters) in Tallinn (Estonia) and this was really great. We got international experience, acquired friends from all over the world, and were familiarized with different cultures.
