At Maastricht University, the bachelor’s in Medicine is very practical; you’ll come in contact with real patients in the early stages of your studies. In the skillslab, you’ll also practice medical skills, such as how to give a patient bad news. After completing a master’s in Medicine, you can call yourself a medical doctor and then you can specialise, for example, as a surgeon or pediatrician.
In the bachelor’s programme in Psychology, you'll learn about the mental processes of humans, including memory, language, thinking and perception. You'll also use an MRI scanner to measure brain activity as a source for our behaviour. This unique combination ensures that you develop a broad professional perspective.
