After your studies
The programme provides an excellent basis for a scientific research career. About 70% of our graduates have gone on to PhD positions. Each year there are, on average, about 12 PhD positions available at the graduate schools Donders Graduate School for Cognitive Neuroscience (DGCN) and the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS). There are many other options open to our graduates. We prepare our students to become behavioural scientists with excellent analytical research skills, advanced statistical knowledge and in-depth understanding of human behaviour. This profile makes our graduates highly valuable within various settings, including academia, industrial and commercial settings (e.g. Unilever, CapGemini,), non-profit organisations (e.g. SCP and Cito), and clinical settings (e.g. Kentalis and Praktikon). Another possibility is to combine research with clinical practice in psychology or educational science and become a scientist practitioner. Students who are interested in this latter option usually do a clinical or applied master in addition to our programme.
