KU Leuven organises an online open day on 1 December. For more information, please visit www.kuleuven.be/online-open-day.
The Master of Psychology: Theory and Research programme at KU Leuven aims to guide students to become independent researchers in psychological science through:
- thorough training in statistics and research methodology
- the in-depth study of the basic disciplines of psychology, supplemented with a specialization in subdisciplines like neuroscience, perception, cognition and language, emotion, social and cross-cultural psychology, learning psychology, quantitative psychology and so on.
In addition to individual and group-based coursework, students become immersed in ongoing multidisciplinary research at the faculty.
The primary purpose of the Master of Psychology: Theory and Research is to prepare students to pursue a PhD project or a research career outside academia. Many of our graduates go on to pursue academic careers at top universities. The programme also provides a solid background for international careers in a variety of other settings, such as:
- scientific research and policy functions in research institutes
- somatic and mental health treatment institutions
- centres for educational research and counselling
- insurance providers
- government agencies
- pharmaceutical, food, and medical technology industries.
