Educational psychologists address learning difficulties, social and emotional problems, issues around disability, and complex developmental disorders in children and young people.

This is an exciting chance for students who wish to widen their horizons and immerse themselves in a different culture and encounter how the discipline of Psychology is viewed and taught at universities in Europe or North America. For example, under Erasmus agreements, students might study for a semester at either Maastricht or Radboud universities in the Netherlands, where Psychology classes are delivered through the English language.
