'I chose the research master because in addition to the practical subjects, the statistical subjects also attracted me a lot during the bachelor. I wanted to further explore my interests in the field of statistics, but at the same time not lose sight of practice because I enjoy working with children. The clinical route of the research master was therefore the perfect choice for me. I am now engaged in research but also in practice! When I have a job, I hope to continue this combination and in this way build a bridge between scientific research and practice.'Student Hannah Boll
