ooh i'm not sure why neil sperry more
00:00:07
well known universe depends for them
00:00:10
uh my name is tommy to her i'm a teacher from the
00:00:12
psychology department i teach one of the first year courses
00:00:17
well and i'm very happy to welcome you here to tell you something
00:00:21
about the study and why would you like to study faculty
00:00:24
and i will also tell you something about the curriculum about courses that you will follow if you start talking here
00:00:31
but for us yeah this part two yeah you see uh he's a real guys
00:00:37
and uh one is they in when i grow up i like to study about people
00:00:42
well maybe that's also at least you have i like this that people
00:00:46
and that's why you're here you maybe like to study psychology
00:00:49
people interest me i'd like to go to some big university and study all about people that
00:00:54
users events that is is a big university so your or your at the right place
00:01:00
and i see you want to learn about people so that we are not lets you will be equipped to help that
00:01:08
well that's maybe something you also having my like i would like to how people
00:01:14
well that's one of the things that uh well we'll well
00:01:18
ready already like to emphasise here already this early morning
00:01:22
that that it's something you can do you study psychology in clinical psychology spot
00:01:28
psychology is much broader than just because i mean at their cost
00:01:33
so actually i think no i'm just nosy actually
00:01:37
what we're asking from you is that
00:01:41
you're here is it you like to know more about people about people's might
00:01:46
and that you like to know how to study these lights
00:01:51
so when you are you're only motivation is that you like to help
00:01:56
people then well we already have to disappoint you from this moment
00:02:01
so we hope that you are having curious mindset that make you like to learn more about human behaviour
00:02:10
so i tell you something about uh the university of amsterdam studying a psychology and
00:02:15
i'll tell you something about the psychology program and that's would be here
00:02:19
the two thousand nineteen two thousand and twenty costa selection procedure
00:02:25
for a program that starts in the fall now in two thousand eighty
00:02:30
that selection procedure already start so i hope you are here
00:02:35
sitting here not for her abilities are kind of all
00:02:39
of that's possible but we hope you will
00:02:43
are willing to start one year later in two thousand and ninety
00:02:48
select that my name's tommy to harm in developmental psychology isn't as we will see
00:02:53
developmental psychology is one of the workers in the first year and i'm the teacher of that course
00:03:00
so what i talk about i will talk about the study program i will talk about
00:03:05
career opportunities of course that's very important you do not only one study working
00:03:10
are probably also interesting what kind of job you can do when you study psychology
00:03:16
i will tell you something about the selection procedure
00:03:19
are as you probably know we half more
00:03:24
uh people that want to study psychology then we have places so there is a selection procedure
00:03:30
and then i'm very happy that you're in a few here and uh she's an international student actually
00:03:36
will tell something about the student experience how we still live here at the second part
00:03:44
so was actually yeah technology
00:03:48
so psychology is the science so we like to emphasise that it's the
00:03:52
files so we use scientific methods to
00:03:56
study our theories or hypotheses
00:04:00
also quality is designs off the he sure so we like to study people and how they behave
00:04:07
but that's not the only thing we also like to study the underlying processes
00:04:11
so why do people show certain behaviours and you can think about motivation
00:04:18
and the buyouts intentions about ideas that people half
00:04:23
of the question is why people behave the
00:04:26
way he that's in one sentence request and that will be addressed when you studies college
00:04:36
so sciences huh oh well uh mostly about seeking answers
00:04:42
to my questions already after big questions why
00:04:47
do people behave the way they do so that's the the the main topic of our stuff
00:04:54
of course you can split up this in much smaller questions
00:05:00
that are really that's double that you can actually starting
00:05:06
so when i do i'll come to impute to scientific knowledge
00:05:10
that's what you do when you study at the university
00:05:13
you lie to become scientists and come to appealed
00:05:17
to me scientific knowledge that we already half
00:05:23
so that means that you must have a very open mind fat cost maybe you have an idea
00:05:29
of why people behave lady you hand your minds that must be open it must be
00:05:36
able to study especially to study your your idea your theory
00:05:40
about how or why people behave the way they do
00:05:44
so you must be able to verify what you think about this behaviour
00:05:50
you must also be able to falsify so you must be oh my yes you are you
00:05:58
are able to say at the end of your research project well my idea as well
00:06:04
so that's a a like a a a different mindset and that's not often my p. c. in a
00:06:10
people are usually looking for confirmation of what they think
00:06:14
but what we will try to teach you is that you will question
00:06:20
anything that people see that's not only the case for circling
00:06:24
t. that's the case for all studies at university
00:06:31
uh to give you some idea sounds maybe very abstract and theoretical but to give
00:06:35
you some idea of how it works i will give you an example
00:06:38
and maybe you have heard about this before about the error should take touch
00:06:44
well you you you see a picture of how that
00:06:47
works some people argue that they are able
00:06:51
to feel the pain that some patients say
00:06:57
so hazy patient and is patience
00:06:59
is suffering from some hang and now these therapist they don't touch this
00:07:06
uh this person so tight she's actually incorrect you but they all go
00:07:12
over with their hands they don't touch the body but they feel
00:07:15
it tried to feel where he need that that he she saying that is the
00:07:22
well and with a kind of quite some circle so popular method to help people and of course
00:07:29
it's very good to help people but at the university we
00:07:33
ask questions me say well this this is this possible
00:07:37
and is this through this actually yeah that theory that we had an artifact
00:07:45
so what we do with these people ask patients
00:07:50
do you think these persons are right do they feel where are your pain is and that this person may say yes
00:07:57
and then there is the yes of course we feel it so that's one way to study this but we as a
00:08:03
uh scientists don't think that's the right way because these people
00:08:06
have a certain mindset they are involved in the situation
00:08:11
uh they are not lines to the whole circumstances yeah that arse
00:08:17
being studied so we think the the method that i just
00:08:21
described to study this we think that's that's not scientifically correct so
00:08:27
how can we thought maybe if unify politically correct way
00:08:32
well that's a experiment has actually been done uh so what you see here if the
00:08:38
subject on the left side i might you see researcher on the right side
00:08:43
and what happens here of it's important to note is that
00:08:49
the subject and researches cannot see each other that's a screen in between
00:08:54
and what the subject off the subject can move hands
00:09:00
below the screen and then the researcher uh he's movie
00:09:06
hands above one of the two hands off stuff
00:09:11
and it's not yet has to tell which where are it's my yeah we're
00:09:17
understand of the research on the left side or on the right
00:09:23
well this is one way to study this the question
00:09:26
and uh it is actually a good procedure is this something that we can sign
00:09:31
differently for work so this is a very nice way to study case
00:09:37
well i'm not a question is uh what clearly is by what if the
00:09:44
patient can actually feel uh where the hands are often they're based
00:09:51
well if that theory is facts expect what would be the percentage correct so the
00:09:57
subject has to guess which had in this situation about which
00:10:04
hands my hand is the hand of that it's like
00:10:07
what do you expect and what we expect if the people can feel yes
00:10:14
yeah but what if it if the theory is correct oh yes well fifty and if
00:10:21
or if it's really true if people can really feel where
00:10:24
somebody had had this week but without actually touching it
00:10:30
well then you expect maybe even a hundred percent correct if we can feel this if
00:10:35
if we without thinking feel that there's a hands off my hands
00:10:39
that we would expect that well in a hundred percent of cases
00:10:43
subjects can correctly guess where the hand of the research
00:10:49
oh well what do we expect which percentage correct do we expect if this uh theories falls
00:10:58
oh yeah it's fifty fifty right 'cause you may think it's uh it's then if and it's wrong it's
00:11:04
still the theory percent but this is an important thing you're correct it's fifty fifty the costs
00:11:10
they subject can guess he has it and in your
00:11:15
two hands left on the left and right and
00:11:19
uh what uh what happened is that you can always yes
00:11:24
you you can gamble and you can uh guess correctly just by chance
00:11:29
that's what we expect when the theory falls that yeah and fifty percent of the cases
00:11:35
the subject will be correct any fifty percent of the cases on people
00:11:41
oh we get these experiments that what were the results
00:11:47
this really sucks
00:11:50
so the low chance level dot bailout fifty percent correct
00:11:56
so that means that this theory has been falsified like this
00:12:03
so because when the subjects of any uh the people that came up with this idea
00:12:10
uh we're correcting you would expect something and the percentage correct more in the direction of hundreds
00:12:17
yep okay well that's kind of experiments are we doing at
00:12:22
the university of utah funky department at the database
00:12:26
so all teachers always all teachers that you and then also do research
00:12:32
and of course not all of them do this particular experiment but we do
00:12:38
a thousands of experiments on all these kinds of behaviour
00:12:44
so let's psychology so it's it's it's the science we'd like to
00:12:49
create scientific knowledge we need to be well well in order to
00:12:56
to test the theory is that we have and well how do you call next functional h.
00:13:02
o. u. command effective research do you think about the methodology so well off the
00:13:09
procedures that i showed you is a the right way to study this with the egg a
00:13:15
blind subjects subjects not see where hands off the
00:13:20
researchers are so that's that's found methodology
00:13:25
well and what if we did not find results
00:13:30
but let's say a percentage correct both uh fifty five percent or maybe sixty percent
00:13:37
do we say okay then you is correct or do we say well it was not a hundred percent sold say incorrect
00:13:44
that you probably know we have met that's to study this one didn't do me
00:13:49
whole a frame being a significant finding and
00:13:53
well we have statistics to study
00:14:00
so but i tell you i already told you something about the program that you will
00:14:07
follow when you start studying psychology at the university has them so he's e. r.
00:14:14
in the second shift first hop here of the study
00:14:17
program so what we think it's very important to
00:14:21
know something about that a methodology and statistics so already
00:14:26
during the first semester few studies you will
00:14:29
get a course on this topic and that's because we think it's so important that you get this mindset
00:14:36
that you get is broken mindset that you want to study if theory if that you hear about
00:14:46
oh but of course you don't do not only want to study methodology and statistics so well let's see
00:14:55
something is going on here
00:14:59
alright well okay no i see this is the first course i thought the other courses would pop up but that's
00:15:06
i first introduce other courts if
00:15:10
cool off of the psychology is the science of behaviour and mental
00:15:14
process that and now i will focus on the behaviour so
00:15:18
we could talk about the phi is the scientific method and now let's talk about the behaviour so what this behaviour
00:15:26
what yeah if you're well we study basically all behaviour as a psychologist to find any
00:15:31
behaviour dress thing but of course you can make choices about mental process f.
00:15:38
well for example perceiving before you show behaviour you
00:15:42
first have to see see or hear
00:15:45
or feel something and that's what people perception
00:15:51
so what you also you will all ready study in the first semester the first year
00:15:56
a lot about perception because that's the start of
00:15:59
all behaviour informations community and you react
00:16:03
to that behaviour is for sure need to uh you need to perceive something
00:16:09
well question you didn't think you make decisions so you think about the information that is coming into your mind
00:16:16
you feel means you want things so these are the mental process is stuff that the stock
00:16:22
yeah
00:16:24
well you have a lark he sub disciplines and the
00:16:26
first one you will learn about this cognitive psychology
00:16:31
so uh cognition is actually difficult or what exactly is copy she
00:16:35
well it is anything that has to do with these mental growth with
00:16:41
perception we thinking so uh this is actually very pro walks
00:16:46
the problem to quality basically everything you need to know about behaviour
00:16:53
in a single works well yes in example of something that you can press c.
00:16:58
a. so row well who liked now what he sees in this picture
00:17:06
a deer at hand with with a well at least the life
00:17:11
me it's like if it looks like the theories popping up
00:17:16
well now i'm show you
00:17:18
yes so now i put it upside down so now is maybe see here upside
00:17:24
down but not look away for a moment link which drive another that yeah
00:17:30
uh_huh
00:17:32
well first off you maybe see exactly say well for other if you
00:17:38
do not know low birth see at the wrist popping up
00:17:42
but it's the you see i see that
00:17:47
it's now or not popping out of
00:17:49
it but that it's like it's car ferry carved into this thing you see
00:17:56
so this is called the uh i'm bitches picture so this
00:18:00
is a picture that you can see in multiple ways
00:18:04
well that's part of cognitive psychology any why this kind of pictures
00:18:08
because it tells you something about how we perceive things
00:18:11
that there's not a single way of perceiving things that
00:18:15
there are very often multiple ways of seeing something
00:18:22
well so you get the information that's there of your first yeah your program
00:18:28
you'll get an introduction to psychology so that's a very brought
00:18:32
course we're you get information about all sub disciplines
00:18:36
but the first step is a plane that you will dive into is cognitive psychology
00:18:42
well in the general the name of the
00:18:45
work is psychology scold bases and death
00:18:54
sub discipline that you will study its developmental cycle
00:18:58
as i told you i'm a teacher of course that worth generated time wars
00:19:04
and developmental psychology is mostly about children how children develop
00:19:09
how they develop their cognitive skills how they developed a social skills
00:19:13
well our development you can also see it as a a development over the lifespan so it
00:19:19
also includes h. enough getting old when we get older what happens when you get old
00:19:25
do your cognitive abilities change then you get holes while we have specific
00:19:32
diseases when you get also that's also included in developmental cycle
00:19:38
then he is c. a. f. very simple task that we often uh
00:19:44
do we children so what you see here if the number of that thought
00:19:51
well it's hopefully very nice for you to tell the number of thought
00:19:57
so it's fine i if i wanted to do is have to usually with their children of round h. four
00:20:04
and often they are already able to count these numbers
00:20:09
yeah me too little track let them be too is that in the second row of numbers which spread them out
00:20:18
but what you see is that it's better now but that and number of dots remains the same
00:20:25
but interesting thing well if you have a four year old
00:20:30
uh which um which column have some reward tossed
00:20:35
then you shouldn't okay how think oh well it's five sometimes they start how okay one two three four
00:20:42
five of then you asked which column has more and then they say the right one has more
00:20:49
so that means that young children cannot combine different dimensions no they can't count
00:20:57
they can see what else shorter am up slower but they cannot
00:21:02
combine this information so that's why they make this mistake
00:21:07
and what we see is that when they get older when you get
00:21:11
six or seven years old that they will do fine this test
00:21:16
well this is a very basic that's a very all test designed by a
00:21:20
very famous developmental so i'll just young players yep and when you
00:21:24
bill starts study in fact how t. v. you will learn a lot about him
00:21:30
so in january that the still the first semester you will get a course developmental psychology
00:21:37
and the topic a general topic is human development so that's
00:21:42
very broad not just children also adults and the elderly
00:21:49
well you study psychology yeah what part of the study
00:21:52
thing in classrooms like this but even beer
00:21:56
caught often uh around five hundred students start studying how lucky
00:22:03
university of amsterdam so that means that you will
00:22:07
four lecture state you will see things very big lecture rooms so he see an example of this
00:22:14
well i maybe that the doesn't uh seem to be very attractive maybe you
00:22:19
feel like a number or you feel lonely in the mad but fortunately
00:22:24
next to d. b. lectures we have small
00:22:28
working groups seminars tutorials because see these guns are
00:22:34
very small groups up to twenty students
00:22:38
and you will have the same group
00:22:43
the whole semester the whole semester you will have your everything group of students and we can say teach
00:22:51
so that means that you can actually get to know people you can
00:22:55
get to know other students you and a friendship to them and
00:23:00
you also notice teacher and for first year students very important that they have someone
00:23:06
that they can talk to it they can ask questions to so this feature is also a mentor
00:23:12
so are we are very proud of me half these
00:23:16
uh the possibility to have these small scale groups
00:23:20
and uh well for example if you could hear the small scale groups
00:23:25
with the groups that of the university of the of course then
00:23:29
university of amsterdam you have smaller groups you so you have a
00:23:32
big lecture whole what lectures up small uh working groups
00:23:40
so this is the complete program of the first semester look at
00:23:44
first your tutorials enduring nice uh tutorials you will this cough
00:23:50
the materials that you get during the lectures you will do you
00:23:54
write this is with the stuff that you learn about
00:23:58
so the teeth are also very practical is the practical part of stuff it's
00:24:08
second semester so the sub discipline that you will get in
00:24:11
the second semester of the first here is social psychology
00:24:14
well i'm here you see to have seen as well part of one of the whole
00:24:18
thing with experiments in social psychology but you have to have two different colours
00:24:25
yeah and if i would give ha for few a blue cap any ah have a few the rack and what
00:24:31
the file the social circle it is is that he would be if you mean if you will get
00:24:38
uh and i hear about your own grow with the blue hat and you will fight
00:24:44
for people with the blue caps if you are in the group had grouping
00:24:48
people in the the rat yep group will favour people with the red hat even
00:24:52
though you don't know each other within a couple of minutes this happen
00:24:57
why that's important very interesting i need a very basic finding that also
00:25:01
it gives you a possibility to explain why people
00:25:05
show behaviour like a casino phobia like racism
00:25:09
because even in a very simple experiment within a couple of minutes you can find this in our group behaviour
00:25:20
well then the second set this deeply in that you will learn
00:25:23
about in the first here is work and organisational psychology
00:25:28
and the is a sub discipline is about on par it'll be colleges to
00:25:35
you will think about healthy workspace is what is a healthy workspace
00:25:40
in what kind of environments can people flourish in what kind of environment today get strife
00:25:47
how can you change environment where people feel stressful how can you manage people
00:25:52
okay and mean make them work together in groups so these are examples
00:25:57
of what you study in the field of work and organisational psychology
00:26:06
so uh uh with a second half of the first
00:26:10
here we get social uh work and organisational
00:26:14
psychology but you see that's not the only thing i well the thing is human social animals
00:26:24
but the other part you will get in the second to this this clinical psychology and well that's maybe
00:26:30
the with some does it mean to me at the moment the rest you most
00:26:36
also the clinical psychology if you will specialise in clinical psychology you can be gone therapies
00:26:43
do you see that situation in therapy is talking to a client
00:26:48
and that's uh well people clinical psychology do so for
00:26:52
example try to uh create a better life
00:26:57
for someone with depression summit schizophrenia somehow with all to see that
00:27:07
but because we are fine we uh do not only do a practical side of clinical psychology
00:27:14
but we also like to know what's going on in the brain of people in general but especially
00:27:20
i'm interested in what's going on in the brain of people with his order like depression
00:27:27
so next to clinical psychology you will get by or collect so you will learn
00:27:33
a lot of things about the brain how the brain
00:27:36
works how neurons work how neurons work together
00:27:41
so the question how does our body influence our behaviour so how does the brain
00:27:47
works out break next to the rest of your body will
00:27:50
also be a significant part of your first year program
00:27:59
so that's what you get in the martin the second
00:28:02
semester clinical psychology combined with by oh psychology
00:28:08
and again all females problematic behaviour and it's biological basis
00:28:16
uh something me i think it's really important is that you are
00:28:21
able to write should probably know when you finish academic study
00:28:26
and you start work most of your output will be oh it up it
00:28:33
and uh that's and that's one of the reasons why we think
00:28:36
it's very important that you can't right well i think and
00:28:40
so be each you academic writing so that's different from the writing fiction learning school course you already
00:28:47
when you are in high school you already started with a riding in academic way but we will
00:28:52
expand that and we will hopefully we will manage that all of you and
00:28:58
right if it very clear text about a scientific stuff
00:29:04
so not academic writing so that's another block and you will
00:29:08
write a probably due to thesis so you well
00:29:12
actually aunts your first year with your own
00:29:16
projects and nice pieces on scientific literature
00:29:23
so that's uh that the theme is written communication and also in the
00:29:28
second half of the study you will get your teacher rules
00:29:32
so again you will have small groups may discuss things
00:29:37
and also in small groups you will do this academic writing and you
00:29:42
get a lot of feedback from your tutor on your academic writing
00:29:50
so what do we offer next to these lectures and next to the structure meals we offer a digital work
00:29:56
environment so up until this here that while thing like for next to
00:30:02
your people start with the mother program canvas but that's quite similar
00:30:07
so what we offer is weekly assignments so uh we want
00:30:11
you to keep on studying over the whole here
00:30:14
and not just studying for final exam do you get me if i'm in this week we have
00:30:21
and so we hope that you keep up and also when
00:30:24
you start a black surely your you will remember more
00:30:29
of course students have a tendency to study and right before the final exam starts but
00:30:35
we know from research that you remember less
00:30:39
if you only cram yeah knowledge
00:30:44
in your mind at the end of course so meeting will
00:30:47
eschew continued it's also practised for the final test
00:30:52
and because we work with these digital an argument you get immediate feedback
00:30:57
so a lot of these weekly test will be multiple choice so you immediately see
00:31:02
where you stand when you get it right already you have to spend more
00:31:10
well the second year of the study program so when you finish
00:31:14
your first year of course will go into your second here
00:31:18
and then we'll go first to arrive we're into
00:31:22
well is it to be in academics academic thinking is very important
00:31:28
also a second course on methodology and to take the statistics
00:31:33
um will happen then and we also started thinking about
00:31:37
test construction also colleges work a lot with test
00:31:41
and often people think that creating a yes it's very easy you get on the sunday afternoon you
00:31:47
design your test but that's not the way it works designing a good test that you can use force to
00:31:55
get or scientific data is really a difficult process
00:32:03
well you can also get a course on professional orientation
00:32:07
because we think it's important that you all ready start thinking about your future very studies
00:32:14
so you get the information about master programs think you
00:32:19
can do and me help you with it
00:32:23
thinking about your future and already making some first decisions
00:32:28
well in the second you also get a course on cycle diagnostics how do we know that someone is depressed
00:32:34
what are the quick criteria well the same for autism it to frame yeah i've or personality disorders
00:32:41
all these kind of his orders will come by and you've learned about this
00:32:47
well you also get a philosophy of psychology to get a broader picture on some history of psychology
00:32:54
and in a second here it's the first time you can choose
00:32:58
something making meeting like so we offer a lot of electives
00:33:02
and you can choose among them one like you like the best that's
00:33:06
the one you're going to do and here you do an elective
00:33:11
that's outside the quality so if you think i'm also
00:33:14
interested in sociology or whatever kind of topic
00:33:19
yeah you can also choose an active at the universe events in but even
00:33:24
you can go to any reverse and plans to do your electives
00:33:29
so that gives you a lot of freedom
00:33:33
well in the second year we also have tutorials and you
00:33:37
also try to with a lot of research skills
00:33:41
but also and that's very important when you want to become a clinical
00:33:45
psychologist or therapist conversations so how actually do you talk with clients
00:33:53
how what is your first reaction when you're here for example something that you don't like
00:33:59
do you immediately start yelling at someone or do you draw back
00:34:03
well worth as a clinical psychology that there is you have to take a stand
00:34:08
in middle mostly interested in what the other one is saying like you
00:34:12
should not react emotionally oh that's what you learned during discourse on conversational skits
00:34:21
well that that's clear of the study program they already choose
00:34:24
especially station so i talked about the sub disciplines
00:34:29
uh first of all of corporate exec committee and a component of psychology
00:34:35
and social psychology work and organisational psychology okay that was luckily he had them math
00:34:41
the donkey these artistic specialist agents that we offer at the university of times
00:34:47
so you're you're are clear you do compels we courses given that particular specialise station
00:34:54
and then you also do some electives
00:34:58
and very important you will write a bachelor ethos and you
00:35:03
do research in groups and this is a big moments
00:35:07
that you do a research project from the beginning to the
00:35:11
f. so you started thinking about research question use
00:35:14
are thinking about how to study it how to design an experiment
00:35:19
you collect they yeah you know i think they yeah
00:35:22
you write up the results in your it's oh this is really the end of
00:35:27
you pay at the end of the bachelor you are already at the start
00:35:32
all beating a researcher being able to carry out a research project
00:35:41
mind that in the fourth year that's already your last thursday
00:35:44
so you can stop study after you received her bachelor
00:35:48
degree it's already fantastic degree most humans continues
00:35:54
tiny and we'll do a master probably
00:35:58
well we over several masters program all they're all
00:36:02
in two d. six if a specially face is that we have probably being easy visualisation half
00:36:08
a specific master tracks so one of the loss of tracks
00:36:12
that's may be of interest for us sports psychology
00:36:16
some people like to become sports psychology so that's possible here at the university ends
00:36:24
nothing you will do an internship so for the first
00:36:27
time if you do clinical after you actually need
00:36:32
quite patience you will actually work with then you will get to perforation your
00:36:37
supervisor will tell you what to do and you will first observe
00:36:42
how inexperienced therapist works and then you
00:36:48
and gradually you will adopt this behaviour and become a therapist stuff
00:36:53
well i'm working organisational psychology will go to a company
00:36:57
and do an internship there and you can also do if you want to become a
00:37:02
researcher you can do a research internship so be here are a lot of possibilities
00:37:09
and then at the end you also do a very big research
00:37:13
project and the difference with the bachelor thesis is that you
00:37:17
do the research for your bachelor pieces in a group but for your master thesis you have to show it
00:37:24
you can't do research independently one year round so you have to do the whole process of doing research
00:37:31
by yourself of course you have a supervision so it's not that you will be lonely
00:37:36
but uh you have to show that you are after in doing research on your feet
00:37:48
the career opportunities what can you do with psychology
00:37:53
so i will show you some career opportunities related to the
00:37:56
courses that you will do in the first year
00:38:01
so cognitive psychology what you do when you we can become the designer and well maybe you think
00:38:07
uh about the design or like someone coming from a technical university designing products
00:38:14
but not as a psychologist you can design environments for example use c. d.'s classroom
00:38:20
and there are actually p. o. thinking about what this includes way
00:38:25
half an environment optimal environment for learning so
00:38:32
for example this will always come to boring or when you think it is
00:38:36
yes eating different colours so they're actually there was someone who have
00:38:40
a lot about this room out to uh design is
00:38:44
room in a way for optimal or you can imagine that you can do that in any kind of situation
00:38:51
so for example my husband is the and aerospace engineer but at
00:38:56
his work there are the colleges working on human factors
00:39:00
so when you design an aeroplane you also have to think
00:39:03
about the humans that will fit in the aeroplanes okay
00:39:08
are you how they have to work our pilot has to work so that's all a cognitive psychology
00:39:15
well for example traffic expertise a specific example and uh well
00:39:21
you can always with any gets a plane into quality because a researcher
00:39:24
because the focus u. r. l. university so focuses on research
00:39:31
well development psychology ad or you can have become an educational
00:39:35
psychology is a half consultants and of course you can
00:39:38
become a child psychologist so we work with children with for example the thumb or a p. h. d.
00:39:45
so that's uh what you learn when you study clinical developmental psychology
00:39:54
other social aspect colleges they often
00:39:57
design behavioural interventions so for example people want to quit
00:40:02
smoking how do you do this can you
00:40:05
design a behavioural intervention to help people quit smoking
00:40:11
well you have to design these interventions also he is the term designer
00:40:17
and a lot of social psychology become a trainer so it's rainer in social skills
00:40:22
and the other stuff that you can do with social behaviour
00:40:29
clark and i had to work in organisational psychology is it's it's working in recruitment and selection
00:40:35
is working as a consultant for companies uh or and is working
00:40:40
with you you organisation to create a a group work atmosphere
00:40:47
well i got the quality you would have to think about if you want to be common there this
00:40:53
yeah that is comparable to do with a medical degree but once you finish
00:40:57
your medical degree you have to continue you have to do with
00:41:01
special essays you know that's the thing the same is true for clinical
00:41:04
psychology so you can do your bachelor and specialise in clinical psychology
00:41:09
that you are master get marks as the green clinical psychology but that's only to start a you are like
00:41:15
a basic clinical psychology is that you have to continue so now you have to do some advanced degree
00:41:24
and uh also for forming a certified psychotherapy is you have to study
00:41:30
four more years so that's comparable to a medical degree for example when you
00:41:34
want to become a surgeon you also have to keep on studying
00:41:40
before you get your final degree in it you can become independent
00:41:43
church and well the same is true for a psycho therapist
00:41:50
well the bias that quality you can become a no sir qualities you can study the brain but you can also study
00:41:58
behaviour that's directly related to brain problems
00:42:02
for example people getting all start to get things how
00:42:07
do you know whether this is normal normal uh
00:42:11
development in new age or do you have these like out i don't know sir coaches as all kinds
00:42:19
of tests to study the difference between someone with normal h. e. on long with out of
00:42:31
so i think if you are very welcome to comment on university and to do what
00:42:39
we have called in english a taster session sewing dutch that's called posted even
00:42:46
so i do gets during this tasty station is an example of a lecture
00:42:50
you will also study independently and you will be a small extra
00:42:57
you get to terry all the opportunity to ask questions and this year the
00:43:03
basis station is on april eleven and you can register on the website
00:43:14
and the first election procedure well as eyes that you we have a
00:43:19
selection more people apply then we can play so that's a pity
00:43:26
but so many already ask from you before you apply to we think about this
00:43:33
i probably t. study that i want to do it if we need to write study for
00:43:38
me to even think danced the answer c. f. than a a you will uh
00:43:46
be in finance to come to a if a selection procedure so
00:43:52
that's actually real study here at university for a week
00:43:56
so that's after you know what it actually women's hockey you get your favour you only know matt then there's a
00:44:02
week that you can study here no extra preparation is
00:44:06
new you can really study in this single week
00:44:11
and what you will see is that there's a lecture day and then warm
00:44:16
uh and then you will study independently you will read lettered sure
00:44:21
that is the next sample of literature that you will really during your first year
00:44:26
uh you will get access to the digital learning environment so you
00:44:29
can do with simon's you come back to sweet exam questions
00:44:34
and then at the end of the week there's a test and you will get a multiple choice exam and then uh
00:44:40
this is the most important thing for being selected so even
00:44:44
when you have high grades in high school i mean
00:44:48
we only theft well that uh that that that's how how we uh select purely based on this
00:44:57
so i can u. m. o. enrolment has the selection procedures
00:45:03
uh are in february two thousand nineteen so that's pretty far right
00:45:07
yes one roll around in february and have one round in march
00:45:12
specific dates will be announced on the website in september well
00:45:19
well why are we do we rely so much on the single set
00:45:24
well because we know that this test predicts how well
00:45:27
you build to a menu start studying psychology have
00:45:31
collect is these data are for years and years and what we found in that's maybe surprising
00:45:37
but that the score on that's that's that's a better predictor of your
00:45:40
statistics says than your grades in high school so that's interesting in
00:45:49
so uh if you decide to want to stand for
00:45:52
quality check the entry requirements especially for international students
00:45:56
so for uh the touch students the f. f. a. b. only programs yeah okay
00:46:03
then a subplot submit your enrolment application so that might have cycles to de link
00:46:11
but then the lectures on the lecture day so in a selection week and they the selection test
00:46:19
and then uh afterwards we will inform you about the ranking so it's
00:46:23
a multiple choice test so well scores are pretty easy to get
00:46:27
so very soon after test me know your rank and you get the ranking number so when you're high in this
00:46:34
ranking you know you're in a wireless making you have to
00:46:38
wait how many people will were high in ranking
00:46:42
uh will actually show up and starting probably here at the university
00:46:45
of them so hopefully you are the higher ranking students
00:46:55
and the application is uh on the right side of
00:46:59
the link and opens on october off work or
00:47:06
between for the looked over and generally fifteen and apply
00:47:17
well for especially for international students you and me half mathematics
00:47:22
in your high school a final exam so for the dutch students of all of you to
00:47:30
mathematics at some level so all levels are are the acceptable levels a
00:47:35
mathematics that are over it's in high school in the netherlands
00:47:39
but for international programs you have an international high school we
00:47:45
will check this whether your mathematical skills are good enough
00:47:49
to study psychology nets because we offer the statistics classes so you need to
00:47:53
have some basic knowledge of math in order to be successful in psychology
00:47:58
so we don't do only the pretext of your prior educations so even though what i already said
00:48:04
you have high grades in high school that doesn't matter everyone has to do the test
00:48:09
and um oh of course we know if you think
00:48:14
you are right student for studying psychology yeah
00:48:19
be happy you're very happy to receive your application
00:48:28
well i um i think the words i can understand if you have a lot of questions
00:48:35
but uh well from our experience from other open days you know that
00:48:39
is the idea which is you have are often very specific
00:48:44
so if you have questions about admission you can go to get emailed
00:48:49
me so you are now in the c. b. l. b.
00:48:52
you can go to the building and there's an information markets in there for example about the mission or
00:48:57
people who are specialised in mission procedure at the infra or you can go there for more information
00:49:04
if you have questions about content of the program you can harm to me afterwards
00:49:10
but the most important that part of the this presentation is this human experience how is it
00:49:17
to be a student at university of amsterdam psychology so i'm
00:49:21
i give a duty for to tell something about
00:49:26
uh_huh yep
00:49:32
yeah so they gave me that for director for instance that relax just don't forget to turn any of them um like easy
00:49:41
so yeah i dunno new international student university of i was
00:49:44
there was a technology elevator and communications uh is nowhere
00:49:49
are you originally from generally serve how many germans are there to do it
00:49:55
but i'm not ready for something to feel a little bit oh yeah so um
00:50:02
mainly i wanted to give you custom chip serve but what brought my script
00:50:07
but also because scripted jokes always the best so's though that would hope
00:50:12
hello i'm a new first study at the university of
00:50:15
observer especially studying psychology i can really recommend because
00:50:20
five a i don't know if you guys knew that but been university of of sort of is really high wreck folk psychology
00:50:26
it's a thing to best university psychology in europe and one of the ten
00:50:30
best in the world and i for you can really joe because
00:50:35
yeah what the legend louder is that of course usage in lectures with a lot of
00:50:40
people but in the end you have small groups eiffel like whatever had a problem
00:50:45
yeah actually new to torture but i thought like even there are
00:50:49
so many people that still individually deal was your your
00:50:53
trouble for example oh i didn't study english person in dutch
00:50:57
so had to learn dutch just for the study
00:51:00
but in the beginning of course that was really hard and so they offered which you get video lectures for
00:51:05
the first year circuit which really really watch all the lectures but it but it's so much easier
00:51:11
so that's kind of stuff is what i really appreciate about the university of amsterdam
00:51:14
because it's less of remote students but still you get so much oh
00:51:18
i'd also of course puts realises that you have exams everyone so you actually can
00:51:24
studies we don't have to force yourself to really have a structure recruits
00:51:30
it actually forced to serve your remote so that's really that that seems to be stressful beginning
00:51:35
but it really hopes than than specific for international students only touched in the get away
00:51:43
but what if you were okay because that's that's some tips specifically for internationals
00:51:50
uh i know you're not gonna be starting next year so coming up here pretty
00:51:53
gonna be starting to hear off there if you go to stir but
00:51:57
but i highly recommend is that you open a background i'm sorry because there's hope future actually
00:52:02
get a program church the nature of mario the current for about six loans
00:52:07
if we could actually get tortured but if you wanna go your pearls contractor time like we everyday
00:52:15
then that really bad really ought to have a quarter of course you could use internet
00:52:20
to recall what uh furthermore i regret that you're really starter proposing no all
00:52:26
any rituals register hosing if you were the residual from packages from rome
00:52:31
because otherwise you're new you know huge really which is the raiders
00:52:35
in order to be able to get or or um
00:52:38
a number directors would assume should lumber so you can go to joe to ensure rose
00:52:44
what was gonna stuff was some practical to spur the nobody to really do it
00:52:51
uh who had been there out part way but there's as much as i
00:52:56
can give you all the way but i think you probably heard
00:52:59
questions about her disinterested his third propose your report minutes is
00:53:04
rubber molded me into try to answer them for you
00:53:10
f. i. very questions about student experience yet
00:53:18
if we were to challenging project uh um uh
00:53:26
well how much does it wasn't supposed to wait for yeah it is there for
00:53:32
the i was the thing is because i don't know yeah parallel stable or
00:53:37
because it is like an subject but an yeah um yeah i you know it it depends like you have
00:53:42
to calculate audio is is better lectures which isn't as large because religion i have like four lectures away
00:53:48
which is the injection takes two hours earlier two sessions mostly in the in a smaller group
00:53:55
so our uh oh that you have to try and uh that's the way
00:53:58
but in the end you really wanna keep starting it especially shape but
00:54:01
it really works which is quite interesting but would uh yeah definitely recommend
00:54:06
that your life that you were always keep studying a little bit
00:54:11
it's meant to be which is maybe a bumper yeah it's nineteen ninety five drawer which
00:54:17
means it would really busy for larger for it but you have refrained even areas
00:54:23
the fried weaker ones but i mean that's played of them because it's
00:54:27
you i know as the whatever there's quite a good prior to
00:54:30
produce means the uh whatever we can serve of course enjoy those
00:54:34
that are also to enjoy the coach rollovers of the city
00:54:37
but then of course in order to uh to enjoy within inches years of
00:54:41
applied for a job but also with the billows you for example
00:54:46
to work for some hours for example or ever murder job next
00:54:51
to you anyway so yeah then or any other questions yes
00:55:01
oh i know i know and uh it's only starting next
00:55:05
year but the ever keep psychology is offered in english
00:55:11
and um well for me it whereas i knew about all university it's a
00:55:15
little it's a really good trip psychology that's the kind of general your
00:55:19
and then um and so that was a city i liked better at at the best during grey would surely
00:55:25
and i also wanted to learn a new language for me is today and this is also something
00:55:28
i can recommend you guys really learning dutch was very essential because it helps you to actually
00:55:34
read locals loco always stick to the international sleep which of course is
00:55:38
also those but i've or just want readers to learn dirge
00:55:41
so it was like an extra challenge outside would be an extra qualification for
00:55:45
nature parallel to you a actually also related which are really good level
00:55:51
server here this was likely the result and then also um what i can recommend protocol rogers i don't
00:55:58
know she noticed but some trends psychology belongs to
00:56:00
different faculties that universities are his behavioural sciences
00:56:05
but if you go to different cities for example generally where i was admitted also
00:56:10
the it really used to resume to go there to us but to
00:56:14
for routine which means uh depending on which faculty belongs to
00:56:19
the focus is a little bit different so in this so anyway i was also admit it would've been a lot of statistics
00:56:24
and it is it is a lot of statistics here but er for it's a pretty good poems
00:56:29
so uh whenever you like covered in numbers and
00:56:33
statistics uh then then you go to
00:56:36
the subject the remote zero that it's worth a bit sore throat you usually we're
00:56:41
to actually learn about people and the role that everything's there any other questions
00:56:53
well guys then um i hope you know and um your and scared of whether selection procedure
