Master

Legal Psychology

How reliable are eyewitness testimonies? Which tests can you use to detect malingers? You'll explore topics like this in the specialisation in Legal Psychology. This programme, the only one of its kind in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, includes courses on topics such as lie detection, eyewitness testimonies, interrogation techniques and false confessions. By combining theory with practical skills, you’ll be equipped with all the training you need to pursue a career in police investigation units, juvenile offenders’ institutions, child protective services and high-security forensic facilities.

      Want to know why others made the decision to join PREMIUM? Here are some! Applying is possible untill November 20th (www.edlab.nl/premium)

      "Premium helps you gain understanding and increase your respect for diversity in views and cultural backgrounds, an experience that does not always happen when you start working. So my advice to any potential participant is “make the most out of it! It will be a great and valuable experience.”
      “I am interested in finding out how to cope with the uncertainty of the real world and want to develop the skill of taking decisions when perfect information is unattainable. In addition, I greatly value the chance of creating something unique and the responsibility of seeing it through to the end, rather than merely analyzing what other people have done.”
      "During PREMIUM you are put in an environment which you don’t get by only studying. The interaction with real clients, together with workshops and personal coaching is a unique and precious opportunity you should not miss.”
      “I have learned a lot from the experience of Premium project and workshops! It is definitely one of the most influencing and unforgettable things in my life."
