Forensic Psychology Practice Doctorate

Course Description

The Centre for Forensic and Criminological Psychology offers a Continued Professional Development route to the Doctorate in Forensic Psychology. This programme is designed to allow Forensic Psychologists, who hold a valid Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) certificate (and preferably status as a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society), to ‘top up’ their existing MSc qualification to Doctoral level.

The programme requires students to attend nine days of taught classes, aimed at developing advanced research skills. During the course of the programme students will complete the following assignments: a research ethics proposal; systematic review; research project; and critique of a psychometric measure. Students will be required to incorporate this work into a thesis that will be examined via oral examination.

Successful applicants may register as full-time students for a minimum period of one year and a maximum of two years, or as part-time students for a minimum period of two years and a maximum of three years.
