Are you interested in scientific research and do you want to find out what it takes to be part of a research team in a university setting? Do you wonder if exploring research topics in sport psychology will meet your expectations or if studying sport science is the right choice for you? Join our team for your compulsory internship, and we guarantee that you will gain insights and work experience in the exciting field of sport psychology research.

As our internships focus on research, we can only offer insights into applied sport psychology on an occasional basis. Follow this link to get an overview of our current research topics.

We offer internships each semester. Our formal criteria for an internship are:

  • If you want to apply for an internship at the Chair of Sport Psychology, you have to be a student enrolled in a university.
  • Your internship must be a compulsory component of your school or university's examination regulations.
  • Unfortunately, we do not offer voluntary internships (i.e., non-compulsory internships).
  • Requests for pre-study internships (i.e., pre-enrollment requirement for university admission) will be decided on a case-by-case basis in consultation with our university administration.
  • The minimum duration of an internship at the Chair of Sport Psychology is six weeks.
  • To apply for an internship, please respect the following application deadlines:
    If  your internship is to take place between January and June, please apply until 15 September of the previous year; if your internship is to take place between July and December, please apply until 3 March of the same year.
