Applied Forensic Psychology with Counselling MSc

2 years full-time, starting in September 2022

Take a first step towards a career in forensic psychology settings on this BPS accredited course, with a compulsory placement and focus on counselling skills.

This degree provides the background psychological knowledge, professional skills and relevant experience you need to move confidently into working psychologically within the legal, criminal and civil justice systems.

You will gain up-to-date knowledge of psychological theory and practices, and develop the insights and skills to carry out research and development projects in forensic services, looking at governance, ethical, organisational issues.

You will also be introduced to the foundation skills of forensic psychology practice and spend time developing basic skills in counselling that can be applied in a variety of forensic settings.

The counselling element of the course, and a year-long placement, will help you acquire skills and experience which, compared with other forensic psychology courses, can greatly enhance your employability prospects.

This course is for graduates in psychology, who are interested in progressing to careers in the forensic services as practitioners, researchers or managers. It is also for those currently working in the criminal justice or forensic mental health systems, wishing to learn more about the theory and practice behind forensic psychology.

Graduate prospects

Thanks to the skills and relevant experience you gain, you will be well placed to secure work in NHS forensic services, probation and prison service, or voluntary sector organisations.

This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and is the first step to becoming a forensic psychologist. Successful completion of this course fulfils Stage 1 of the requirements towards Chartered Membership of the Society and full membership of the Division of Forensic Psychology.

Course structure

Compulsory course units

These compulsory units are currently being studied by our students, or are proposed new units.

Placement


This degree features a year-long compulsory placement, during which you will develop practice skills. You must be based in the UK for your placement.

The placement will start in the summer of Year 1 (usually beginning of June, subject to COVID-19 restrictions) and is for four days per week, including a research day.

While many of our placements are in the South West, as this is our catchment area, some of our placements are based in other locations across the UK. We have had recent placements available in Bath, Bristol, Devon, Dorset, but also in Wales, Oxford, Leeds and London.

The placement will be organised by the academic team and can take place in a variety of settings, such as the NHS, prison in-reach, charities, law enforcement agencies, Children's Services and research settings.

Different placements will have different requirements, but all will require:

  • a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (and sometimes higher-level vetting, such as for prison access)
  • possible health and safety regulations (including checks on up to date immunisations)

Please note: if you are an international student, you will find it easier to gain some relevant documentation in your home country before starting the course. You will be provided with details regarding what will be required.

While some of our placements are paid positions, the vast majority are unpaid. By going on placement (even if unpaid) you’ll gain experience not normally available through volunteering roles.

Forensic psychology as a profession is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act; hence, no conviction is ever considered Spent. You must disclose any convictions to the course supervisor and placement provider. If you do not satisfy any of the required checks then your placement opportunities may be limited.

Placements and COVID-19

In the last two years, placements have been fully in-person, fully online, or a blend of the two. In the coming years, if there are government restrictions in place, there may be changes to your placement opportunities. If this does occur, we will take reasonable steps to help you to meet the placement learning objectives and support you in the development of your dissertation.

Please note: even for fully online placements, students must be based in the UK. This is due to the need to access organisations' IT systems and for data security.
