The International Psychoanalytic University (IPU) Berlin again achieved excellent scores in the 2019 CHE Ranking. In the field of psychology, it belongs to the top group in ten categories evaluated by students. This means that the university in Berlin has the best rating, far ahead of its competitors. After to the top results in the 2016 ranking, the IPU is solidifying its position as one of the best universities in Germany for studying psychology.
In teaching and research, special emphasis is placed on the transfer between theory and practice. The top scores in terms of scientific reference, but also in terms of professional reference of the teaching content, indicate that the transfer between science and clinic is extremely successful. The fact that the research area has been further expanded and funded in the meantime is shown by the total third-party funding, which has almost doubled compared to 2016.
At the IPU, individual advice on the course of studies and close supervision by teachers and administrative staff are of great importance. In the corresponding evaluation categories, but also in the support at the beginning of the study, there were therefore very good results. The high values in the infrastructure of the rooms, IT and library areas also show that the IPU is not only a special place to study, but also a most advantageous one.
Stays abroad are not obligatory; all students can obtain individual advice and complete periods of study or internships at one of the partner universities abroad at any time according to their own needs. There are always enough places available. The support provided by the International Office was rated accordingly above average.
