Why study the Psychology programme at Radboud University

  • A challenging research project every year: you decide on the topic you wish to explore and on how to conduct your research. This will allow you to become the independent professional that prospective employers are looking for.
  • From the second year on, you may compose your personal learning path, which is designed to fit in with your interests and preferred professional field.
  • During the third year of your programme, you may complete part of your programme studying abroad. Do you already see yourself in e.g. Australia, Japan, South-Africa?
  • We won't treat you like a number! In addition to lectures, you will attend weekly work groups and practicums in groups of twenty students. There is a relaxed atmosphere and informal collaboration between students and teachers. Furthermore, as a first-year student you will have your own teacher-mentor, with whom you will become well acquainted and who will be there for you to answer any questions you may have.
