Less practical than expected

covid-19 shut down some of the practical courses and possibilities. The campus is very livable, the buildings include enough rooms that can be used for work und studying with fellow students. very structured and interesting study, curriculum is satisfactory.

Okay but expensive

Hey, so if you really really wanna study psychology and there is just no other way to achieve this, then I can definitely recommend the SRH in HD. The classes are interesting and it’s pretty cool to study since you get lots of help. But for that I’d say you still pay too much money. Decide yourself :)
