The AIHE Academic Institute for Higher Education GmbH offers modern, creative and innovative distance learning courses and further education in the field of psychology.

In exceptional cases, professionals have the opportunity to be admitted to the Master's programs without a first degree (without a Bachelor's degree).

The Master's programs offered by AIHE partner universities are particularly suitable for people who are not able to participate in classrooms. AIHE students are based all over the world.

The travel to presences often complicates the decision to start a study. Get to know fellow students from all over the world. Online. The AIHE team and our cooperation partners are looking forward to learning together.

The principle of franchise Master’s programs

The AIHE Academic Institute for Higher Education GmbH is a franchisee on behalf of international universities (in particular the FHWien der WKW and the London Metropolitan University). As a specialist with many years of experience in scientific distance learning, AIHE GmbH has for many years been commissioned by universities to support the development and implementation of master's degree programs - particularly in the field of psychology.

AIHE GmbH students are enrolled at the respective partner universities and receive their Master's degree from these universities. The time in between is filled by AIHE GmbH with its own personnel, which, of course, has been accredited and approved by the universities within the scope of accreditations and validations. The quality assurance of the degree programs is in the hands of the universities, which in turn ensure professionalism and customer satisfaction in very close cooperation with us.

  1. MSc Behavioral and Organizational Psychology (English, 1 year)
