Jeremy Dillman
What is so great about this programme is the way theory and practice are integrated.

I came to Groningen because I had the opportunity to study Psychology here. I was fascinated by human thought and behaviour and I wanted to learn more about it. Furthermore, Groningen is a picturesque city full of canals with sailboats and bicycle paths that get you across town. Throughout my bachelor I discovered the cultural opportunities and liveliness that only a city with 25% student population can offer.After my bachelor's programme I worked in Television Production in Germany for two years, before deciding to come back to Groningen for my master's degree. Currently, I am following the ' Talent Development and Creativity' master's programme. We study the nature of talent, where talent originates, and how it can be developed.It is a unique study, with an approach to psychology that I think is revolutionary. Whereas most Psychology programmes only examine the development of large groups of people over time, the programme in Groningen also focuses on processes on the individual level. Iam very interested in that research angle - carefully studying someone's development and interactions and describing it in an almost mathematical way. Another great aspect of the 'Talent Development and Creativity' programme is the way theory and practice are integrated. One course on talent development consisted almost entirely of lectures by practitioners: from the Conservatory, for instance, or from FC Groningen. These experts presented how they select and develop talent in their institution. Then they discussed their ideas with us and were actually interested in our input. Most courses I have in the 'Talent Development and Creativity' trajectory are structured into two components: initially building up knowledge and then applying it to a 'real world' case. This is challenging as you might have a great theoretical Idea which turns out to be impractical when transferred to a real case. But it is also very gratifying: instead of cramming for an exam and forgetting everything the moment you exit the exam hall, you really get to put your knowledge to use. After my study, I think I would like to work at a talent development department at an international company, conceptualizing Talent Development programmes that help employees to get the most out of themselves and to perform optimally. Given my work experience in Television, I am searching for a Media Company, because I loved the creative environment it offered.

We learn a lot about how to recognize talent and creativity.

After I finished my Bachelor's degree in psychology at Leiden University, I wasn't sure which Master's degree I wanted to do and I decided to first travel for a year. During my trip I found out that I really wanted to learn more about creativity, but when I started looking for Master's degree programmes on that topic I only found programmes in the US and Scotland. Then I stumbled upon the Master's programme in Talent Development and Creativity in Groningen. It seemed very interesting and it is the only Master's programme in the Netherlands that really focuses on creativity. I finally submitted my application during my yoga teacher training in Nepal.We learn a lot about how to recognize talent and creativity and how to encourage people. I'm very interested in coaching. We have a course unit in which we learn coaching techniques by practising on each other and then actually applying them in practice. I still live in Leiden. After being away for a year, I wanted to be near my family and friends. I travel back and forth – fortunately there is a direct train – and sometimes I stay overnight with my uncle.

The best course unit that I took was the one on coaching.

I'm the first student to have completed this Master's programme. That's because it's new: officially the programme only started this academic year. But I was allowed follow some of the course units last year, which explains why I have already completed the programme.In Talent Development and Creativity you learn how to bring out the best in others. You help them to discover and develop their talents.This topic has always interested me, which is why I chose the programme. I'm particularly interested in sport, but I didn't want to limit myself to sport psychology. In this programme, you learn about the development of various sorts of talent: in sport, in music, at school, at work… you name it.The best course unit that I took was the one on coaching. First you learn all the theories and models of coaching, and then you apply them in the practicals, by using role play. And then, and this was the part I liked best, you actually coach someone, a student assistant or PhD student. This meant we could immediately apply what we had learnt, and in fact that was the case with all the course units. I think that is a major strength of this Master's programme. Although you can do a placement as part of the programme, I chose not to. I wrote an extensive thesis, which involved conducting research into affordances, the possibilities that people see to take action, and psychological momentum in a sporting event. The expectation was that a person who is in positive momentum – who has a lead over the opponent for instance – will see more affordances than a person who is in negative momentum. And that proved to be true. I'm now working on a PhD proposal that follows on from my thesis. Research didn't appeal to me very much before, but this topic is so interesting and I am so into it now that I really like the idea of finding out more.

Being a freelancer gives you a lot of freedom, which is nice but can also be hard.

I did my Master's in Psychology specializing in Talent Development because I wanted to do something with Sport Psychology but there was no such Master's programme at that time. My plan was to do a postgraduate degree in Sport Psychology afterwards in Amsterdam, so I followed several course units on the topic during my Master's programme and wrote my thesis about temporal structures in sport. My supervisor was Ruud den Hartigh, the coordinator of the Master's programme in Talent Development and Creativity.After I graduated I had to wait a year and a half before I could start my postgraduate degree. I decided to send an e-mail to De Speld, the Dutch version of The Onion, asking if I could do a placement there in the meantime. I could, and after the placement ended they asked if I wanted to work for them as a freelancer. I really liked it, so opted for a career as a writer instead of as a psychologist. I now work for three to four different clients including De Speld.I knew it would be hard setting out as a freelancer because you don't immediately have enough clients and really have to put yourself on the map. But in the end you find new clients in the most surprising ways. Being a freelancer gives you a lot of freedom, which is nice but can also be hard.I work about three days a week at clients' offices, the editorial office of De Speld for example, and two days at home. I don't really use my psychology skills in my work, but I still find my studies very useful. I really learnt to think critically and improved my writing skills a lot while writing my Master's thesis.I highly recommend doing a placement during or after your studies. You gain experience, get to know a lot of people and it's good for your CV, which makes it easier to find a job after you graduate. It's a big investment and takes a lot of time, but really is worth it. I'm glad I did it.

Having finished the MSc. program, students are well-prepared for the job market, in particular for jobs focused on 1) recruitment and selection, 2) consultancy and policy advising, 3) coaching and teaching, and 4) (embedded) scientist.
The responsibility of a (talent) recruiter is to attract and select suitable candidates for an organization. This can be a sports club, a company, or another professional organization. A consultant provides his or her expert advice on policies to stimulate talent and creativity within an institution such as a school or company. Coaches or teachers work with individual students, employees, musicians, or athletes to reach their goals and to maximize their creative and talent potential. Finally, an (embedded) scientist investigates questions such as what is the best practice to develop talent and creativity? What factors should be focused on when selecting employees or athletes? When working for an institution, such as a company, school, or sports club, such questions particularly pertain to the specific institution.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

Students who finished the program Talent Development and Creativity can be valuable to various kinds of companies, sports clubs and –associations, educational institutions, etc.

Examples of possible positions are: Scientist on talent development and creativity, which can be at a university, but also in an organization (embedded); Coach, Counsellor, or Consultant in the domains of education, work, sports, music; (Talent) Recruiter in the fields of work, sports, arts, and music; Policy maker/analyst in the field of talent development and creativity programmes.

Already during the MSc. program we take care of the employability of our students. In the courses students learn about using their skills in practice, and for the master thesis students have the opportunity to work with an organization in the domain of their interest. Apart from the regular teaching program, we also offer some unique benefits to our students. First, we look for interesting meetings for our students to attend, where they can do some networking and get in touch with practice outside the courses. In 2016-2017, for instance, our students could sign up free of charge for a Dutch-Flemish meeting on Talent Selection in work, sports, and education. Second, students interested in sport psychology can obtain an official sport psychology certificate when having finished this program. Third, our foundation- and skills courses count to obtain a Coaching certificate. And finally, we have a (voluntary) mentoring program, meaning that we can connect students to people working in the field during the MSc. program to exchange knowledge, skills, and contacts.

Having finished the program Talent Development and Creativity, students will have an internationally recognized Master of Science degree, and more.
