Applied Forensic Psychology with Placement MSc

2 years full-time, starting in September 2024

Prepare for a career in forensic psychology on this BPS-accredited course. You’ll do a work placement in a forensic setting, enhancing your experience.

This course provides you with the background psychological knowledge, professional skills and experience you need to start your career in the field of forensic psychology.

It is British Psychological Society (BPS)-accredited. This means you’ll gain contemporary and relevant knowledge that you can use in a range of forensic psychology roles within the legal, criminal or civil justice systems.

You’ll combine theoretical learning with a work placement of up to 12 months. This is a key feature of our course and is designed to help you demonstrate your skills in an applied setting, while gaining important experience.

Throughout this course, you’ll develop an up-to-date understanding of psychological theory and practices. This will increase your ability to undertake research and development projects in forensic services, looking at governance, ethical and organisational issues.

You will also gain foundational skills in forensic psychology practice and spend time developing forensic practice skills that can be applied in a variety of settings through your work placement.

If you are a psychology graduate interested in progressing to a career in forensic services as a practitioner or researcher, this course is suited to your needs. It’s also suitable if you have an undergraduate psychology degree and are working in the criminal justice or forensic mental health systems and want to learn more about the theory and practice behind forensic psychology to progress your career.

Learn from experts in the field

You’ll learn from experts in forensic psychology, as well as staff in the wider Department of Psychology community. Their passion, knowledge, experience and research shape their teaching to enhance your learning experience.

Use specialist facilities

The Department of Psychology is located in a new £30 million building.

You can use this space for group meetings, personal tutor sessions and computer work. The building contains advanced psychology research facilities, including:

Gain important career skills

As part of the course, you’ll take part in timetabled sessions to support your professional practice and clinical skills development. These skills-based workshops are designed to help you become a reflective practice practitioner and develop your transferable skills for your work placement and future career.

We’ll also provide you with guidance and support for working in forensic settings (including interview support) and CV writing assistance. All of these are designed to enhance your future employability prospects.

Graduate Prospects

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

These posts could include training positions to allow the completion of the British Psychological Society (BPS) Qualification in Forensic Psychology (Stage 2) with the aim of becoming a Chartered Psychologist with the BPS Division of Forensic Psychology and a Health and Care Professions Council Registered Practitioner 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.

Placement


This degree features a work placement to help you gain important workplace experience and enhance your academic learning. You must be based in the UK for your placement.

You will spend up to 12 months working closely alongside a psychologist, or other suitably qualified professional working in a forensic setting or where forensic research is relevant. This is an opportunity to use the practice skills you’ll gain during your studies in a practical setting and learn from real-world professionals.

Your placement, which will usually start at the beginning of June in Year 1, is three days per week. You will also spend one day per week working on your dissertation.

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

The placement will be organised by our academic team and can take place in a variety of settings, such as:

  • the NHS
  • prison in-reach services
  • charities
  • law enforcement agencies
  • children's services
  • research settings

Some placements require previous experience, which will be taken into account when they are allocated. Choices may be more limited if you have no or little experience.

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.

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.

Assessment breakdown

You’ll experience a balance of different forms of assessment designed to support your professional development. This will be made up of coursework; including essays, presentations, reports (including a professional assessment report), placement-related assessments, reflective practice and skills-based assessments, and a forensic psychology dissertation.

Placement

Your tuition fees during your placement year are significantly lower, but you will need to continue to budget for your costs during this period.

It is unusual for forensic placements to be funded and most are unpaid. Therefore, you’ll need to consider this in your financial planning.

Our placements are three days per week, plus one additional day a week for dissertation-related research. This enables you to consider paid work for one day of the week.

Travel to and from placements will be at your own cost. As the placement duration is one year, you can consider relocating, but you are responsible for the cost of this and your accommodation.

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). This will be at your own expense. Currently enhanced DBS checks cost £44.
  • health and safety regulations (such as checks on up-to-date immunisations and and additional vaccinations if required). These will be at your own expense.

During your placement, you may wish to consider professional indemnity insurance. Several organisations offer this, including three companies suggested for graduate members of the British Psychological Society.
