aan het woord
Yujie"I chose Clinical and Developmental Psychopathology as my master's programme for two reasons. Firstly, the curriculum helps me learn more about understanding the core features and symptoms of psychopathological disorders. Secondly, as mentioned in the programme description, this Research Master's indeed bridges the gap between research and practice, with a strong emphasize on doing research work. You have many opportunities to seek interesting research topics either in clinical or developmental psychology areas...

Arz Stephan"I realize I made an excellent choice in my academic journey by joining the Research Master's in Clinical and Developmental Psychopathology program at VU Amsterdam. It provided me with the opportunity to be trained by top researchers in the field. I did acquire a diversity of research skills, and learn to apply them under their supervision. It is a perfect combination of a broad theoretical tool box, an active and dynamic field work, and a solid research basis.
Also, this very international program has familiarized me with the international research networks in psychopathology. Both the teaching staff and the students form a melting pot of cultural diversity while sharing a common passion for research.
Finally, living in Amsterdam is an enriching opportunity. Culture and history are abundant in the city and reflect the happiness, as well as the dynamic and innovative spirit of the Dutch people."
