    I am currently a Bsc psychology student of the University of Aberdeen. I am expecting to graduate with a first degree in 2010. I know that in the UK many universities offer fast-track PhD programs. This means that it is possible to embark on a three- or four-year course of doctoral study straight after a first degree. Is that also possible in Holland or other countries in continental Europe?
