What our alumni say

Marjolein Littooij, graduated in 2010

“I like the most at my job that everyone has their own story to tell, and these stories are often very interesting to hear.”

“After graduating from my Master’s in Child & Adolescent Psychology I went on to do the Master’s in Social and Organisational Psychology. After graduating, I started working as a psychologist, in which I’ve been able to use what I learned in both of these Master’s programs.”

“At the moment I’m a medior consultant in the Selections department of the Ministry of Defence. I’m involved in the intake and promotion of candidates for military functions within the various armed forces.”

“I engage candidates in a psychological interview, analyse test results, and provide advice on the (un)suitability of the candidate for the proposed function. My work involves speaking with many different (mostly adolescent) people and quickly learning about their lives.”

“The Child and Adolescent program gained me a lot of insight into the difficulties that people can experience in their youth and this helps me to connect with the people I work with.”
