About Techniques and Methods in Psychological Science at University of Padua

The three-year international Bachelor 'Techniques and Methods in Psychological Science' uses distance learning to allow access to high quality psychological training for all those students who live in contexts that do not allow regular attendance of classes. The course is oriented towards clinical and methodological skills. It includes basic knowledge within different areas of Psychology, including the basis of the scientific methods of investigation, and extends to the different cognitive and emotional processes and to their psychobiological bases. Applied contents will include the know-how for implementing community-based intervention projects (for example in collaboration with or for international NGOs), for intervening in an emergency and to improve the well-being and promote the health of adults and children even in cultural contexts other than the national one.
The innovative learning-at-distance program foreseen by the course includes two components of knowledge transfer and interaction. The online teaching is provided with the help of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), which will be created by the teachers in charge of the different courses, on a public platform consortium with the University of Padua, as well as any web conferences. Interactive teaching is carried out mainly by using the University's Learning Management System (LMS) platform through forums, exercises, peer-review and feedback activities. All materials will be available in a unified access mode for online and interactive teaching. Every year a few-days long intensive meeting will be organized in presence to allow all the students to perform the exams.

What students think about University of Padua

    Yiwey Cao

    Testimonial from Yiwey Cao, student at University of Padua
    • Master’s degree in Economics and Finance
    • Galilean School Diploma
    • Current position: Consultant at Prometeia (Milan, Italy)

    As Padua University students we are accustomed to apply rigorous methodologies in order to be successful in our academic lives: it is not easy to be prepared for all the exams which could be concentrated in a very short time, exam preparation requires good time management and ability to work under pressure.

    Both these skills have a long lasting impact in the professional career in order to manage projects with great complexity.

    As Galilean School student I had also the possibility of having an interdisciplinary academic path and the interaction with students from all different academic backgrounds that gave me a flexible mindset. I remember discussions of news topics with student of Philosophy, Math or Biology in which I found very interesting their way to approach the problem.

    Having a constant exposure in the multi-disciplinary environment benefits me in the long-term. Especially in the professional routine, this is surely a value-adder, for it enables us to analyze the problems from a different perspective. As in one of my recent projects, we apply a physics model to a bank in order to perform the client segmentation.

    Padua graduates possess good reputation in all the companies I have been in contact with. The strong academic background together with extracurricular activities (such as internships or international experiences) make Padua graduates appealing candidates in the job market.

    Testimonial from Maria Daniela Rueda Lara, student at University of Padua
    • Master’s degree in Human rights and multi-level Governance (HRG)
    • Current position: Advisor to the Executive Directorate of the National Institute of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in Ecuador (Quito, Ecuador)

    The University of Padua has taught me the value of challenge. It is difficult to change your address, language, culture and customs when you leave your country. UNIPD has a very different method than my university at Ecuador, so every step was a challenge that I chose to overcome and with this, I reaffirmed what I wanted to do in life. Challenging yourself is a perfect way to keep you open-minded, resilient, ready to act and more alive than ever.

    At University of Padua I learned and I keep with me to never take anything for granted. There will be always someone better, faster, stronger, and you just cannot give up. But there will be also tons of generous and kind people, also take your time to meet them, talk to them and learn from them.

    In my city there are not so many UNIPD graduates but in general it well seen to have a degree in a well-known university from a country that has arrives to certain level of development.

    Omar Antonio Celis Bojorquez

    Testimonial from Omar Antonio Celis Bojorquez , student at University of Padua
    • Master’s degree in Civil Engineering
    • Current position: Project manager

    In my childhood, I used to spend a lot of time with my grandmother after school. Since she lived in a very dangerous neighborhood in Peru, I spent most part of my time trying to invent and build traps and stuff to make her feel more safe.

    So it was about little projects, from design until construction; that feeling just made “click” something on me. Managing civil projects (no more traps) remind me that sensation, and I take care of it with passion and accuracy like it was for grandma.

    The most important teaching that the University of Padua has transmitted to me is that hard working and sacrifice pays always. Every course is like real life projects: time management and organization are everything.
