The aim of our Psychology (BİLGİ-University of Liverpool/Dual Degree) Program is to provide our students with an opportunity to enrich their academic as well as social development in two different cultures, and to practice their English at an advanced level. Upon completion of a comprehensive three year curriculum at İstanbul Bilgi University, students will study during the fourth year at the University of Liverpool. During their year at Liverpool, students will design and conduct a year-long research project, which will give them the opportunity to be part of a research team, to enhance their research skills and to gain expertise in a particular area. During this year, students will also be able to take elective courses from world-renowned scholars who are spearheading state of the art research projects using sophisticated laboratory facilities in basic and applied areas of psychology which are only recently becoming known in Turkey, such as cognitive neuroscience, forensic psychology and psychology of addictions,. Graduates of the dual degree program will enjoy all the employment opportunities available to individuals graduating from psychology departments in Turkey and abroad. In addition, their dual degree will increase their chances of finding the job that they want in Turkey, as well as give them an important advantage in terms of being accepted into a graduate program in Turkey or abroad should they wish to continue their academic careers.



* No new students will be accepted to this program.
