Introduction

The only of its kind in Scotland, this programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society and designed for graduates with a psychology degree. It is your first step towards chartered status and membership in the Division of Forensic Psychology.

The parallel MSc Psychology in Forensic Settings offers professionals from different, related backgrounds the opportunity to undertake training across the same subject areas, but it does not lead to an externally accredited psychology qualification.

Your programme draws on expertise within academia and GCU’s strong link with active practitioners to give you thorough and relevant training in the field – including instruction in the psychological, forensic, criminal and legal issues that will inform and influence your future career.

You’ll learn to adopt an independent, analytical and evaluative approach to forensic psychology – and become a part of our thriving and diverse academic community. Here, you’ll be encouraged to build a future that truly serves the common good, whether you’re helping detect and treat offenders or advising on staff and services development across a wide range of fields.

Graduate prospects

GCU is known for world-class education, with a global reputation and top 5% ranking that will help you compete for a variety of positions in the field of forensic psychology.

You might choose a role in the public sector working in the courts, law enforcement and prisons, hospitals or mental health and social work; pursue a speciality in a commercial setting or continue your academic career.

Professional accreditation

The programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society as the Stage 1 GBC pathway within the programme or the route towards Chartered Status and membership of the Division of Forensic Psychology.

International student start dates

For new international students, orientation events start on 14 September 2018. This extra time is specifically designed to assist new international students in settling into the UK and GCU prior to the start of general student induction and teaching.

There will be a whole host of fun and informative activities taking place during this period, including campus and city tours, as well as welcome events where you can meet other international students.
