Masters in Forensic Psychology Practice (2 years full time):
Doctorate in Forensic Psychology Practice (3 years full time):
These two programmes aim to provide the necessary knowledge and skills to work as a forensic psychologist; to analyse offending behaviour and its effect on victims, to manage, assess and plan treatment strategies for both victims and offenders and to work as an expert providing professional reports and training. Each week half of the time will be spent at the University in academic learning and the other half in a forensic practice placement. Students will have the chance to work with offender groups (adults, young people, individuals with learning disability) both in community and institutional environments. An evidence based approach is emphasised with the objective of developing skills in research and evaluation. Therefore, professional case studies, research studies and forensic practice reports are carried out.
The two year Masters Course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) to be equivalent to stage one of training as a Chartered Forensic Psychologist. At the end of the Masters, students may choose to complete a third year full time on forensic research and psychometric methods leading to a Doctorate (Foren.Psy.D.). The practice component of the Doctorate can contribute to stage two of training as a Chartered Forensic Psychologist. The entrance requirement is at least a second class honours degree in psychology which confers Graduate Basis for Registration with the BPS. Deadline for applications is end of March each year.
All applications and enquires are dealt with by the University’s Postgraduate Admissions Office.
