Association of Psychology Students PSIRIUS
The Association of Psychology Students of the Department of Psychology of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Rijeka – PSIRIUS was founded on 17 November 1993, at the initiative of a few of its then current students.
The students were drawn together in the Association with the desire to interconnect and to participate in academic and cultural life both within the framework of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka and beyond.
The aims of the Association are to promote psychology as a profession, to improve the study and teaching conditions, and also to connect psychology students with psychologists throughout the country and the world.
This association aims to encourage students to acquire up-to-date knowledge of the field by exploring beyond the standard teaching framework, to encourage students' scientific work and to organize various events in the field of psychology.
Members of the PSIRIUS are connected with other students of psychology through PSIRIUS' membership in the United psychology students of Croatia (Ujedinjeni studenti psihologije Hrvatske - USPjeH), which is connected with the European Federation of Psychology Students (EFPSA). EFPSA organizes congresses, exchanges and socializing of students from all over Croatia and Europe.
