The School of Education and Psychology of the University of Navarra offers an exciting opportunity for students to form part of a research group and improve basic research skills.

Participants serve as assistant researchers, gaining practical experience of projects. Students can apply for a specific project. Admission will depend on the project needs and availability.

Students will be assessed accordingly. Home institutions will specify supervision and assessment requirements if different. All assessment requirements should be provided by home institution in advance.
