Course summary

The Foundation Year provides an opportunity to build up your academic writing skills and numeracy, and will also cover a range of subject specific content to fully prepare you for entry to an Undergraduate degree. This is an integrated four-year degree, with the foundation year as a key part of the course. You will need to successfully complete the Foundation Year to progress on to the first year of your bachelor’s degree. During your Foundation Year you will get the opportunity to talk to tutors about your degree study and future career aspirations, and receive guidance on the most appropriate Undergraduate course to help you achieve this; providing you meet the entry requirements and pass the Foundation Year.

This BPS accredited course covers the relationship between psychology and the criminal justice system, exploring police investigation, false confessions, expert witnesses, jury behaviour and treatment of complex offenders and gives you the chance to work on research projects such as offender profiling and crime analysis, criminal thinking styles and lie detection. Graduates from this course who achieve a Graduate Basis for Chartership with the BPS are eligible to apply to study forensic psychology at postgraduate level. Typically, students opt for an accredited MSc programme, which the University offers - which corresponds with Stage One of the Forensic Psychology Diploma. An alternative route is to undertake a taught doctorate programme which will combine the taught elements of Stage One with the practice placements of Stage Two.

Alternatively, you would be qualified to apply to study any area of psychology at post-graduate level that leads to chartership (e.g. Educational, Sport, Health etc.). Other career routes taken by former graduates include; undertaking a PhD (an apprenticeship in research), working in both officer and staff roles with the police (e.g. Witness Care Officer, Crime Reduction Adviser, Antisocial Behaviour Officer, Hate Crime Officer), research roles with the Ministry of Justice and client facing roles in youth offending, probation, prison, mental health, Women’s Aid, etc.
