University of York
Forensic Psychology Studies
We normally look for a UK bachelor degree in psychology with 1st upper 2nd Class Honours (or the overseas equivalent). To be eligible for entry on the MSc in applied forensic psychology programme of study, you must have Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS), as this is a BPS accredited programme. You need to submit a letter from your institution stating your eligibility for GBC, or this should be clearly stated by your referees in the reference they provide for you. Applicants without GBC may apply for the equivalent non-BPS accredited MSc in Forensic Psychology Studies (MSc FPS) but their 1st degree should demonstrate knowledge and understanding of psychological principles together with competency in research design and analysis. If you're a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to.
Modules include: Forensic psychology in practice; research design and statistics; legal and contextual issues; forensic and generic skills; forensic psychology in practice; issues and methods in applied research; forensic mental health; empirical research project; dissertation.
Short answer papers; briefing papers; case formulations; open essays; multiple choice papers; an empirical research project.
