Master day visitor
I flew in from Milan to visit the session about the Research Master Social Psychology. I’m doing a master in Italy now, because I didn’t know this master at Leiden before I registered. Leiden is one of the highest ranked universities, especially in the field of Social Psychology, that’s why I will drop out of the master in Italy to start here in Leiden in February.
I’m interested in social issues, how to assess and solve them. I hope in the future I can combine Psychology with policy and law making or using applied research at an NGO for example. Knowing what you want to do with your future is fundamental in your choice for a master. You need to know if the master you are doing is the way to get there.
'I've been busy exploring the options since my first year. At first, I was considering Clinical Neuropsychology, but now I’m more interested in Social and Organisational Psychology. The Research Master’s really appeals to me.'
