Applied Cognitive Psychology (MSc)
Leiden offers a pre-master’s programme in Psychology (in Dutch). This one-year programme may suit students whose academic background matches the master's specialisation, such as:
- a university bachelor’s degree that is closely related to Psychology
- a Dutch higher professional education (HBO) degree closely related to Psychology
The admission committee will make a decision on every individual case whether admission can be granted.

Leiden is the only university that offers a pre-master. That means I can start the master’s in Psychology sooner, and I don’t need to have a bachelor’s first.
