This programme addresses many of the aspects of the science of psychology.
I come from Greece, but my mother is Dutch and I have fond memories of visiting the Netherlands in the summer. That's why I decided to study in the Netherlands. When I started the programme, back in 2009, the University of Groningen was the only Dutch university to offer English-taught Psychology programmes, so Groningen it was.
Groningen is a beautiful city! I like that it's small: you can walk almost everywhere and it has an intimate feel to it. And as there are so many students it almost feels like you're living in one big university...
There are only four people in our class, but we have a great connection. We enjoy each other's company and get along really well with each other. Plus we get the personal attention we need from our lecturers.
I hope to find a PhD position after I'm done with my Master's. I would like to look at psychology and psychotherapy from the public's point of view: how do people perceive therapists and counselling, how do they form opinions about them and how have these opinions changed in recent years? I'm not sure where I'll be able to do my research, but I would love to do it here at the University of Groningen!
