a strong background knowledge in psychological assessment. For students
who want to become a professional psychologist after obtaining their
Master diploma, the Psychodiagnostics Registration (Basisaantekening
Psychodiagnostiek; BAPD) of the NIP may give you an edge on the job
market. The NIP (www.psynip.nl) is the Dutch psychologists’ professional

the NIP requirement to obtain the BAPD, students need not only pass the
‘Measurement & Diagnostics 3’ course, but they also need to fulfill an
internship in which they officially assess three clients.
