'I went to the presentations of the master’s specializations of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, 'Social and Organizational Psychology and Clinical Neuropsychology. With the introductory presentation included, I went to four presentations, so It’s a lot of information to process. Although I would have wanted to attend even more presentations, if it weren’t for the time I had.'
'I still haven’t made up my mind about what master’s I would like to do. However, I do now know that Social and Organizational Psychology and Clinical Neuropsychology interested me the most. The presentations were really informative. I learned what every specialization is about, and what I can do with it afterwards. Now it’s up to me to decide whether it is what I would like to do. I guess I’ll need some time to think it through!'

'I am a business student but the things that are related to psychology, no matter whether it’s organizational behaviour or behavioural economics, spark me up. I’m a lot more passionate about psychology than about business. I also feel like studying psychology would give me more options; I could use that knowledge also in the business world.'
'I am from Norway but I am currently living in the Netherlands. I came to visit Leiden University because it is close to me but also because it seems like one of the best places to study.'
'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.'
