Do you need mathematics to study Psychology?

Statistics play an important role in the program. Nowadays, all pre-university (VWO) students study mathematics as part of their curriculum. As a result, they have had more practice with an analytical way of thinking. This helps a lot in the course on Statistics.

Students with a pre-university (VWO) diploma who have graduated without mathematics I/II or A/B, as well as students with a first-year diploma (propedeuse) or a diploma of a University of Applied Sciences who have not graduated in mathematics at a pre-university (VWO) level, can follow a course in mathematics before enrolling as a student at the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
