Kickstarting your career with THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS you need
Once you have completed this Master’s programme, you will possess all of the competencies described in the Child- and Adolescent Psychologist professional profile (NIP, 2012). Professional practitioners were closely involved in the drafting of this professional profile.
Basic professional skills
During the optional Academic Professional module, you will learn vital basic skills needed in various professions. These vary from employment orientation, maintaining professional networks, and professional ethics, to dealing with conflicting interests of patients and clients, peer consultancy, and life-long learning.
Contact with the professional field during your studies
In your courses you will benefit from the supervision of lecturers who are solidly grounded in professional practice, as many lecturers have a double appointment with the university and a clinical institution. This allows the lecturers to provide a window to your future profession. You will also have an opportunity to explore your career options during your internship.
Contacts with alumni
Students and alumni exchange their experiences, knowledge and career opportunities via a LinkedIn group.
