The Master's programmes offered by ALP partner universities are particularly suitable for people who are not able to participate in classrooms. ALP students are based all over the world. In the USA, Australia, Russia, United Kingdom and many other continents and countries. Women from Saudi Arabia are just as interested as executives from the USA who want to be free in time and still want to continue their education. The travel to presences often complicates the decision to start a study. Get to know fellow students from all over the world. Online. The ALP team and our cooperation partners are looking forward to learning together.

The principle of franchise Master’s programmes

The ALP Akademisches Lehrinstitut für Psychologie 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, ALP GmbH has for many years been commissioned by universities to support the development and implementation of master's degree programmes - particularly in the field of psychology.

ALP 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 ALP 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 programmes is in the hands of the universities, which in turn ensure professionalism and customer satisfaction in very close cooperation with us.
