'I'm in the second year of Psychology in Leiden so I’ve still got plenty of time to think about my master’s, but I want to know what the options are. Not only that, at some point in time I’ll have to decide what area I’m going to specialise in. I’m torn between Health and Medical Psychology, Clinical Neuropsychology and Methodology and Statistics in Psychology. Not everyone likes grappling with numbers, but I love it.'
'In Portugal all Master’s degrees in Psychology take two years, so I was amazed to hear there are one-year Master’s programmes in the Netherlands. I was always planning to do the two-year Research Master’s here, but now I’m wondering whether a one-year Master’s might be a better option. I came here today to hear the differences between the two. This will help me work out which is best for me.'
