Student Stories Master's Open Day


Visitor Master's Open Day Daniël


‘I’m studying Social Pedagogical Welfare at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences but next year I want to take on an academic programme. At the moment I’m tending towards Psychology or Child and Family Studies. What matters is that it’s a programme that focuses on the care of children. Why’s that important? Well, because you can give preventative help to children. With adults it’s mainly a case of limiting the problems, while with children you can nip problems in the bud early. Today I hope I’ll find out more about the compulsory bridging year before I can start studying at the university.’

‘When I was doing my applied sciences bachelor’s in Social Pedagogical Welfare I worked a lot with handicapped people. Now it’s time to get more into the theory behind the treatment methods. Only, Im not sure yet which specialisation I’ll do within Education and Child Studies. Luckily I can give it some thought while I’m doing my pre-master’s year. Digital Media in Human Development might be interesting; you look at the influence of digital media on child rearing and education.’

‘I studied Integral Security at applied sciences level and right now I’m doing an internship at the Gaming Authority. My studies went well but now I’m looking for something more. I recently came across the master’s in Management of the Public Sector, but first I have to do the pre-master’s track. It’ll be hard work combining a study and work, but I’m going toi give it my best shot. I found out a lot of good information via the website and I’ve just been asking one of the study advisers some questions. Now I want to get some more detailed information and see what advice they give about optional subjects.’
