Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BSc Psychology with Forensic Psychology (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate degree. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects. You will develop a thorough understanding of the key issues and debates that relate to psychology and forensic psychology. As part of our mentoring scheme you will be allocated a member of academic staff with forensic psychology expertise, who will advise you on career options and employability, as well as opportunities to gain more relevant experience. You will gain a wide range of transferable skills associated with the practice of psychology, including critical thinking, analytical skills, reflection, self'motivation, planning and organisation. During your final year of study you will carry out a research project under close supervision of a member of faculty in the Department of Psychology whose research interests and expertise are in the forensic psychology field. You will learn about all aspects of research in the area of forensic psychology, which forms one of the roots of our research'led teaching. Working and learning in an applied fashion will allow you to gain an appreciation of how to use available evidence'bases to inform practice, and how research can feed back into the working process. Teaching in the style of small group tutorials and lab classes will provide you with particular focus on applying your learning to a forensic context. The degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society as conferring eligibility for Graduate Membership.
