The student delegates of Work and Organizational Psychology (WOP) form an administrative body that serves as an intermediary between the students and lecturers of the WOP specialisation at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The WOP Student Delegates are enthusiastic students who organize study-related activities throughout the academic year, in particular for students taking the WOP specialisation (approximately 250 Bachelor’s and Master’s students in total).
The board of WOP Student Delegates is made up of 4 students who are united by the conviction that Psychology is a discipline that can make an important contribution to the efficiency and efficacy of organisations. As student delegates, our aim is to help other students to recognize possibilities and opportunities in this area.
Goal of WOP Student Delegates
Students taking the WOP specialisation tend to be unsure about their future labour market opportunities. Because of this, we organise WOP-related lectures, workshops and excursions in order to give students a clearer picture about who their possible future employers could be. By the same token, we get businesses in touch with motivated psychology students.
As WOP Student Delegates we also help ensure the quality of education, we organise ‘borrels’ (drinks) and publish a bimonthly WOP newsletter, thereby actively engaging our fellow students.
What do the WOP Student Delegates have to offer to organisations?
Organisations get the opportunity to increase their brand awareness among psychology students by participating in WOP-related lectures, workshops or excursions organised by the WOP Student Delegates. Each activity is promoted among at least 250 psychology students through promotional materials that are distributed around the UvA’s Psychology faculty, such as on Canvas, posters, Facebook and word of mouth, in which the company name and logo are mentioned.
Lectures are usually given by one or more speakers, who come to the university give approx. 2-hour talks about WOP-related activities within an interesting organisation. Workshops often include more interaction between speaker(s) and students, e.g. by discussing business cases. During an excursion or inhouse day, students visit the organisation and are presented with an interesting programme.
Hopefully this gives you a good impression of the WOP Student Delegates and what we do. Interested? Contact us!

The student delegates of Brain & Cognition and Clinical Neuropsychology (B&C) form an administrative body that serves as an intermediary between the students and lecturers of Brain & Cognition and Clinical Neuropsychology. There are currently five enthusiastic student delegates who organise activities such as seminars, excursions, ‘borrels’ (drinks) and film screenings, in particular for students who are taking the Brain & Cognition and/or Clinical Neuropsychology specialisations.
They also organise panel conversations that help ensure the quality of education. Students and the lecturer of a particular course get together in panel conversations in order to discuss potential points for improvement of the course. During these meetings, which are often informal in character, attendees assess the course in terms of what works well, what doesn't work well, and what can potentially be adjusted.
The activities are announced to students through promotional materials that are distributed around the UvA’s Psychology faculty, such as on Canvas, posters, Facebook and word of mouth.
You can reach out to the student delegates anytime if you have tips, complaints or ideas, or if you want more information or ask a question.

You can approach us if you have ideas for a seminar, drinks or other activity, but also for tips, information and questions. We’d love to hear from you.
The student delegates of Clinical Psychology form an administrative body that serves as an intermediary between students and lecturers of Clinical Psychology. The student delegates are a group of enthusiastic students who organise study-related activities such as seminars, film screenings and excursions for students and staff of the research domain. They also organise panel conversations to evaluate courses with the respective lecturer.
The student delegates’ goal is, on the one hand, to give students a clearer picture of the workfield that they will likely enter after graduation, and on the other hand, to build a bridge between students and lecturers in order to increase involvement on both sides. The latter is done by panel conversations in which we safeguard the quality of education and voice the students’ opinions.

Students and the lecturer of a particular course get together in panel conversations in order to discuss potential points for improvement of the course. During these meetings, which are often informal in character, attendees assess the course in terms of what works well, what doesn't work well, and what can potentially be adjusted. The student delegates often take the initiative for such panel conversations, as they are closest to both parties: the lecturer and the students.
The student delegates are both Bachelor’s and Master’s students. Our core tasks are, among other things, the organisation of legendary parties, department seminars and excursions. We represent students of our department, and are also involved in course evaluations, in which we address current and future matters related to education and the curriculum. We are here for you. Are you curious about the Psychological Methods specialisation? Do you have questions about the specialisation, or are you just looking for some ‘inside information’ from current students? Are you a Psychological Methods student and do you have questions about your study programme? Don’t hesitate to contact the student delegates!
We are available to answer questions about the study programme, the lectures and, of course, our legendary parties. Don’t be shy and send us an email about whatever topic.

The Social Psychology specialisation is the most interesting, as well as the most sociable of all specialisations. The student delegates of Social Psychology strive to make the Social Psychology specialisation even more interesting and as lively as possible.
Among other things, we engage ourselves with the teaching evaluations of the Social Psychology courses, in which we sit with lecturers to discuss any educational issues, as well as good suggestions from students. We do this in focus groups. Interested? Send us an email at email@example.com.
We also organise lectures, in which social psychologists from all kinds of disciplines come over to talk about the latest social-psychological phenomena and what their daily practice at work looks like. In addition, we organise workshops and excursions to companies, in order to give students a clear picture of their work opportunities upon completion of the Social Psychology study programme. Lastly, we also organise the Social Psychology Christmas party: a good moment to come together and foster relations between lecturers and students, in a sociable, informal and accessible way.
