About Forensic Psychology at University of Lincoln

This MSc Forensic Psychology focuses on the clinical and applied aspects of forensic psychology with an emphasis on working with children, adolescents and offenders with mental health concerns.

The programme has a clear emphasis on practice-based topics in forensic psychology. You will have the opportunity to develop your knowledge of police investigative processes and considerations for courts and sentencing, while having the chance to gain knowledge and skills that are beneficial for working with different client groups, considering their assessment, risk level and treatment.

Our forensic psychology team draws on the expertise of a range of practitioners working in applied forensic psychology settings to provide specialist input into the programme.

You will have the opportunity to conduct a research project alongside academics who are active researchers in their fields. Areas of expertise amongst staff include understanding deception and interviewing skills, sexual desire and sexual offending, and online sexual exploitation material.

Entry requirements

A minimum 2:1 in a Psychology honours degree with a research dissertation, or relevant experience.

To use the MSc in Forensic Psychology as Stage 1 in the route towards becoming a Chartered Forensic Psychologist, an essential pre-requisite is that you must be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society. This means that you must have a first degree in Psychology from a BPS approved course.

However, some individuals without GBC may choose to take the MSc to further their understanding of Forensic Psychology but should be aware that the course could not then be used to work towards Chartership as a Forensic Psychologist.

Desirable pre-requisites are that you should have at least an upper second class degree in psychology, have undertaken a research dissertation relevant to the forensic psychology field and have experience (voluntary or paid) working in this area.

International Students will require English Language at IELTS 6.0 with no less than 5.5 in each element, or equivalent. http://www.lincoln.ac.uk/englishrequirements
