Note on joining the psychotherapy training (Ausbildung zum Psychologischen Psychotherapeuten) in Bavaria after having studied our master's:
According to the transitional regulation (§27 PsychThG), students who had taken up a bachelor's degree in psychology before September 2020 can take up a German postgraduate psychotherapy training upon completion of the master's degree in MSc Psychology: Learning Sciences (until 2032).
If in doubt, please clarify with the responsible authorities, e.g. in Munich, directly.
Please note, however, that our master's program does not have a focus on clinical psychology.
