Former students

"I studied Work and Organizational Psychology as a specialized course during my second semester at Lund University. Through various seminars and presentations as part of the course (MSc. in Psychology, 120 credits), this course has added value to my present knowledge and education, which helped me in different aspects of life. For instance, I worked in a Japanese based Human Resource company in New Delhi. I also apprenticed in an NGO in New Delhi. 

Besides education, these skills are helping me to think critically and logically, work under stressful environments, organize information in a structured manner and present in an orderly fashion.

Currently, I am pursuing an additional course in “Professional Diploma in Clinical Psychology” in New Delhi, India.

Coming to Lund (August 2015-2017), Sweden and studying at Lund University will forever remain a lifetime memorable experience for me.”
