Bachelor student from Italy
I’m already a student here in the International Bachelor in Psychology programme. I came to the Master's Open Day for Clinical Psychology. I want to become a therapist. I like to make difference in the small world of each person.
I’m living in Utrecht, so it is a lot of travelling, but I like Leiden a lot. It has a high educational standard and the Netherlands is one of the best countries to live in. The Dutch culture, governmental structure and the small gap in living standards.
I visited the Master's Open Day and received a lot of practical tips on registration and smart strategies during your internship, so this visit was worth the travel. I also got to see the building which is friendly and not so massive. I already knew Leiden was a cute city, I took a boat trip along the canals this summer. I would love to come and live here as well, so all tips on housing are welcome!
I study Social Services in Rotterdam. From the first year I knew I wanted to become a clinical psychologist. Yet, I am finishing this study first because I like to have a foundation as a practical professional. Leiden University is the only one with a pre-master in Clinical Psychology.
