The registration for the PsyKo 2020 will be open soon but today we are already able to tell you the topic. PsyKo is a congress organized by psychology students for psychology students. You will have the possibility to listen to interesting speakers, participate in trainings and meet students from all over Switzerland. The topic of PsyKo 2020 is “Healthy mind, healthy body – what health means to psychology”.
We asked three students, which attended lasts years PsyKo to tell about their experience:
The PsyKo congress has been an incredible experience: Quite interesting presentations, nice food and amazing new friendships. All in all, I would recommend it to ongoing psychologists. You’ll get to know a lot of people from different parts of Switzerland, you might be introduced to sexology and positive psychology and you will have a lot of fun during social events. (Eileen)
The PsyKo is the perfect opportunity to connect with other students and to learn about the different directions in psychology. I was always looking forward to PsyKo! It is almost like a class trip, only you do not know everybody in advance. But that does not matter at all, at the congress you get in contact so fast and easy. Not only did I meet wonderful people, the PsyKo as well helped me in my career decisions. I decided for example where to do my master after I talked to students from other universities at the PsyKo. As the congress takes place in the middle of the spring term so it was the highlight of my semester: one weekend in the nature, inspiring topics and so many funny moments with people. I can recommend the PsyKo to everybody that is looking for an adventure with many happy people. What stays after the event is definitely the many friendships that started there. I was lucky to participate several times in the PsyKo. Each time I admired the kindness an engagement of the organizing committee. A big thank you to the PsyCH-Team for making this congress happen!

Thinking back of PsyKo 2019, I remember all the inspiring people I met and the interesting conversations we had. I felt in good hands from the moment I stepped into the venue until I left. The program offered was insightful and diversified. We had the chance to participate in trainings led by psyCH trainers, workshops with professionals and student lectures. I appreciated it a lot to get this insight into different working areas. On Saturday PsyKo organized a small expo with information tables where professional institutions and associations in the field of psychology introduced themselves and offered an informative platform for networking. As a freshly baked psyCH trainer, I also had the opportunity to lead a training myself which was a great experience for me. The social program was fun and created an enjoyable ambiance during the whole weekend. I enjoyed spending time with so many like-minded people and having the opportunity to exchange thoughts, experiences, and ideas. I remember PsyKo as an enriching event because I gained so much practical knowledge and I felt strongly motivated for my studies afterward. When I participate in other psyCH events now, I always meet familiar faces which is just great. (Christina)
