really fruitful experience

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Studying at UTM has provided me with so many opportunities to experience research in psychology first hand. Working with the professors and PhD/MA students has been valuable in teaching me the more practical aspects of research, and definitely have enlightened me on topics of interest and future directions.
