Student Klaudia Kroll
There is a lot of one-on-one contact with the lecturers, and in addition we receive a lot of support from our thesis supervisors, in particular with finding a placement.

My name is Klaudia Kroll and I am from Germany. It is exciting for me to follow the Master's programme 'Youth 0–21, Society and Policy' because it matches perfectly with my career interests. Most of all, I love that this programme revolves around the best interests of the child.

Before starting the Master’s programme, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Groningen. Although I have been always passionate about psychology, my interest in youth studies was even stronger, and this led me to change my field of study...
In addition, I hope to experience what it means to be a child protection practitioner who is in direct contact with children in need. Eventually, I would like to put my experience and the knowledge gained in the Master’s programme and work on improving child protection services, bridging the gap between research and practice.This Master’s programme is relatively small, which means there is a lot of one-on-one contact with the lecturers. In addition, we receive a lot of support from our thesis supervisors, in particular with finding a placement. I find the most interesting course ‘Child Abuse and Neglect’ by Dr Mónica Lopez Lopez. During class we are expected to take part in discussions. This means that the relevant readings must be studied in advance, to the extent that one understands the main message.Overall, I feel lucky to have found the Master’s programme which not only caters to my interests, but also provides students with interactive and practical course units.

We consistently try to bridge the gaps between research, policy and practice.

My name is Pauline Schreuder and I am Assistant Professor and coordinator of the International Master's track Youth, Society & Policy, one of the tracks in the Master's programme in Pedagogical Sciences. Together with my colleague Greetje Timmerman, I teach the course unit in Conceptions, Policies and Youth Participation. I also supervise students during their placements and theses.

Students come from the Bachelor’s programme in Pedagogical Sciences, both from Orthopedagogy and Pedagogy/Educational Sciences...
These different dimensions are important because they contribute to the understanding of different perspectives and the ability to work together with people from different disciplines.The degree programme is characterized by its focus on youth issues concerning growing up and development. We consistently try to bridge the gaps between research, policy and practice. Students are actively engaged in these issues through seminars, group assignments and discussions. One of the themes dealt with is how different countries have organized their decision-making regarding children who are placed in care. Do the children or young people have a say in it? If yes, how is this arranged? The programme also covers the implementation of interventions and innovations.The theoretical course unit in which I am involved takes place early in the programme. Students are introduced to the various definitions and interpretations of ‘youth’ across countries and to the implications of this for youth policy. Students analyse the youth policy of a country of their choice and compare their analyses afterwards. Then you see that a concept like ‘youth participation’ is interpreted very differently, but also that those differences do not always coincide with the distinction between Western and non-Western countries.

student Richard Boer
The things I learned in the first few months of theory worked well for my internship. I was very well prepared.

Hi, my name is Richard Boer and I am 49 years old. I study the master's degree programme 'Youth, Society and Policy'. Originally I am a system therapist and I am also a teacher at the 'Hogeschool Leeuwarden'.

I wanted to do a master’s degree and then I heard about this new study programme. I have been to an information event twice and based on that I made my choice. Especially the fact that you are working with policies greatly encouraged me.
I am very pleased with the structure of the study programme...
It leans towards Sociology but it has also something to do with Education (Onderwijskunde). We think about issues like ‘How do you develop a project in an organization?’, and ‘A new method will be introduced, but how should this be addressed?’
With some fellow students we have produced a policy piece. That was very nice to do!
After a few months of theory, your internship will start. I am currently doing an internship at the municipality of Leeuwarden. During such an internship you will get to know an organization at the policy level. I learn what it is like to work with different parties who all want something from, in this case, the municipality of Leeuwarden. Very interesting! In addition, the things I learned in the first few months of theory worked well for my internship. I was very well prepared.
This year, only ten people study ‘Youth, Society and Policy’. I like that very much, because you have a lot of contact with your fellow students and your teachers. Moreover, it is an international study. This year we had two students from Germany and Spain. In this way, you learn something about the policy in other countries and how they shape it. The language is English, and I like that too. My English has therefore improved quite a lot during the past few months.
