For students starting with their master's programme in September 2024

This Master's Kick Off is meant for all students who are starting their master’s programme in Psychology in September 2024. On this day, you will meet the study advisers, the coordinator of your master's specialisation and your fellow students, and receive information about your specialisation, study advice and practical matters.


Already before the Master's Kick Off you are supposed to have enrolled yourself in courses and exams. This counts for both mandatory and elective courses. Enrolment takes place in MyStudymap. In this system you can also plan your enrolment in advance. Course enrolment starts on 10 July 2024.

Before you enrol in courses, you will need to watch a video presentation that contains important information about the programme of your master's specialisation. If you have any questions after watching, ask the coordinator of your specialisation at the Master's Kick Off.

Links to these presentations can be found on the page 'Psychology MSc Students 2024-2025: Start Course Enrolment'.
