Student Profile(s)

Mehdi Alemohammad

I valued learning from experts who worked directly with offenders. The course benefits from well-known chartered forensic psychologists and researchers who work regularly with offenders.

I particularly enjoyed the regular seminars given by well-known forensic psychologists. The integration of theories with practical experience made learning much more pragmatic. There were also talks by police officers, volunteer organisations and firefighters, highlighting the need to think outside of the box and not to work in isolation.

I attended field trips, ranging from a young offender institute (YOI) to a high security forensic psychiatric unit. Besides the obvious advantage of visiting and learning from these sites, this also helped me to develop a broader perspective of what is involved in forensic psychology. I am now using the skills I gained at the University working at a specialist forensic mental health service in Kent
