EFPSA’s mission is to represent the needs and interests of psychology students of Europe. We are dedicated in promoting scientific cooperation, cultural exchange between psychology students which will enhance their mobility. By constantly developing their services and the quality of communication between European psychology students and their national and local associations, they are creating a fertile ground for the science of psychology in Europe and subsequently around the globe. They work on a voluntary basis and believe that high levels of commitment and enthusiasm will guarantee the best outcome.

They aim to be a reliable and widely acknowledged representative of the European Psychology Students, including students themselves, psychologists, institutions, and professional organizations of national and European level. The EFPSA wants to build a strong network of psychology students and their national and local organizations which will enable unity, under one European roof. The EFPSA believes in a multicultural Europe without borders and strive to spread our activities within and around Europe. With spirited leadership, cooperation and team work, they intend to provide psychology students of Europe with unique personal experiences, giving them extraordinary possibilities to grow both as human beings and as professionals; by learning from and sharing with one another in an international environment. 
They endeavor to raise awareness of principles not just in ‘Psychology’, but indeed to lessen the misconceptions that may surround it. In addition the outcome will enable the EFPSA to integrate psychological concepts into society.
