The atmosphere in class: The programme definitely aims to have quite an "horizontal" teacher-student relationship. So far, I have always felt that they are approachable and willing to collaborate and discuss with us. Of course it is up to us to approach them and benefit from it.

Internship: At the moment, I am working on my minor project for which I am conducting an experimental study on the relationships between incentives, pressure, and cognitive performance. I believe that having two big research projects (minor and major) is quite valuable. It gives us the chance to explore different areas.

Plans after receiving a degree: Besides the world of academia itself, insights from behavioral research are applied in many companies and other kinds of organizations. Therefore I believe that the skills we acquire in the programme can be put into good use in many different ways. Personally, I am still unsure about what I'll be doing after the Master's, as I feel quite attracted to both worlds.
