At Utrecht University, science and practice are closely connected. Courses in this programme are taught by lecturers with experience in the field of child and youth psychology and/or as researchers in the field of developmental psychology. The internship is directly related to the core subjects, which you complete alongside the internship. The programme's structure also allows you to explore your own interests through elective courses, assignments, the internship and the thesis.

job perspective

Many of our students have found jobs in clinical or educational settings or at national, provincial or municipal institutions. Their work consists of assessment, intervention, supervision and coaching, but also the development of policy or methods, policy assessment and applied research.

study abroad

Would you like to go to another country to attend an elective course or do an internship? Or would you like to write your thesis abroad? If you are sufficiently proficient in the local language, then in principle you should be able to do so. Utrecht University has partnerships with various international universities. Interested students are encouraged to discuss the available options with their programme coordinator.
