Could you please advise me how to earn credits for these required courses without following a complete bachelor program ? 

Is there anything I can do in order to qualify myself for admission to psy graduate programs in Europe or US? I completed a few courses on Coursera but can't earn credits via it.

Some of the most common prerequisites needed for admission to psychology graduate programs include:

You can take them at a community college (not sure if they are a thing where you are), but in the US those credits tend to be pretty cheap. Also, look up the specific master's programs you are interested in and make sure what courses you actually need for those programs.

Thanks, but not in the US.

Oops, in my country credits at open university or similar will be accredited by EU universities as long as the degree is obtained. It takes around 2 years to complete a degree, so I am seeking ways to make credits required in one year.
