For students starting with their master's programme in September 2022
This Master's Kick Off is meant for all students who are starting their master’s programme in Psychology in September 2022. On this day, you will meet the coordinator of your master's specialisation and your fellow students, and receive information about your specialisation, study advice and practical matters.
Already before the Master's Kick Off you are supposed to have enrolled yourself for courses and exams. This counts for both mandatory and elective courses. Enrolment takes place in the Leiden University system MyStudymap. In this system you can also plan your enrolment in advance. Course enrolment starts on 13 July 2022.
Before you enrol for courses, you will need to watch a video presentation(s) that contains important information about the programme of your master's specialisation. If you have any questions after watching, ask the coordinator of your specialisation at the Master's Kick Off.
Links to these presentations can be found on the page 'Psychology MSc Students 2022-2023: Start Course Enrolment'.
