We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The MSc Forensic Psychology course provides a strong emphasis on the application of Forensic Psychology in professional practice, and practising Forensic psychologists are employed by the School to lecture on the course. All of the more theoretical modules include topics on how the theory is applied in practice. The MSc reflects the academic skills underpinning the application of psychology to a forensic setting.
MSc Forensic Psychology attends to victims and offenders. With regard to the latter, it follows the progression of an offender from their first contact with the criminal justice system until their eventual release into the community and/or transfer to conditions of less security. The role of on-going assessment, intervention and throughcare are emphasised throughout.

Students should have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree in Psychology (or an equivalent Psychology qualification) recognised by the BPS as conferring GBC.
Students with a degree that does not confer GBC are advised to apply for the MSc Psychology (Conversion) course and then to consider applying for this course. Students with a relevant lower second class honours degree, but showing a good final year performance, including a good quality dissertation/research project, will be considered on an individual basis.
