Entry Requirements For This Course
UK Honours or equivalent in Psychology or any Psychology joint degree accredited by the British Psychological Society.
A 2:1 degree which entitles you to Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (see www.bps.org.uk for details of which courses in the UK qualify for this).
Normally we require a UK 2:1 (Honours) or equivalent in relevant subjects but we will consider high 2:2 or relevant work experience. Candidates with professional qualifications in an associated area may be considered. Where a ‘good 2:2’ is considered, we would normally define this as reflecting a profile of 57% or above.
Applicants are expected to have 60% or equivalent in the dissertation modules from their undergraduate studies.
If applicants have not yet completed their degree, they should have achieved mostly 60% in their modules with the occasional grade in the high 50’s. If there are extenuating circumstances which have affected performance but the applicant has shown ability to work at a 2:1 standard then this can still be considered by the department.
Applicants should have relevant practical experience and/or a relevant dissertation, project or other relevant research experience.
Applicants should have at least a basic appreciation of forensic psychology, as well as good references.
Selected applicants will be interviewed to establish their suitability for the course. For applicants who are unable to attend, such as overseas students, the interview will be conducted by telephone or Skype. Applicant interview days are likely to be held in February, March, April and May.
