“My experience at the UCAM as a student of the Degree in Psychology is being both rewarding and surprising. Although people were reluctant to accept the Bologna Process at first, for me it has been a complete success for those students who attend lessons every day, since students actively participate in their learning under a continuous assessment.
Therefore, acquired skills are not only those ones of “knowing how to do a good exam”, but also to learn to work together, do our homework, be able to communicate in public and even step by step approach the professional practice.
The relationships with my classmates go beyond the classroom, many of them are now friends, good friends, people with whom you grow and learn every day. In short, I’m glad of my choice.”
