European Psychology Semester

Psychology Bridging the Gap

The European Semester of Psychology takes place at a different European country each semester. It is hosted by a different EFPA member organisation and aims at creating a common space in which European psychologists can interact and communicate as well as creating opportunities for local communities to interact with other psychologists and perspectives.

The current European Semester of Psychology takes place in Cyprus and is hosted by the Cyprus Psychologists’ Association. During this time, a number of events, both EFPA internal events and open to the community, will take place in Nicosia and will gather participation from across the continent.
