Alumni meet students in Psychology Methodology & Statistics
On February 15th 2018 former students in Methodology & Statistics (M&S) of Leiden University share their current and previous professional activities to provide M&S students an insight into their career perspectives.
The Unit of Methodology and Statistics of Leiden University (M&S, formerly M&T) organises a second M&S alumni event. By organizing this meeting, the section hopes to further intensify its ties with and between our alumni and to bring current and former students in contact with each other, in order to provide current students an insight into the career perspectives of M&S alumni.
In a short session that will take place during the break of the meeting, all present alumni will be introduced to the current students and the students will be given the opportunity to ask questions. More questions can be asked afterwards during the informal drink in the cafe on the ground floor of the Pieter de la Court Building.
Three alumni share their current and previous professional activities.
