The Department of Psychology uses a web-based platform for course information called LUVIT. On LUVIT you will find important information about the course, such as compendiums from lectures, information from the lecturer, changes to the timetable, etc.



Master’s students are served by the Library of the Faculty of Social Sciences.

It gives you access to the electronic resources connected to the University and its libraries. In addition, you will use your StiL address when you log on to LUVIT.  You will find information about your student account enclosed in your welcome letter.
