‘Leiden is the only university that offers a pre-master’s bridging year. That means I can start the master’s in Psychology sooner, and I don’t need to have a bachelor’s first. I’m off to get some information on Social and Organisational Psychology. And I want to know if my scientific knowledge is good enough for me to take the Statistics programme.’
