Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), this course is designed to develop the skills, knowledge and attributes required for a career in forensic settings such as the police, prison and probation services, secure units, special hospitals, or the Home Office.

The programme emphasises the importance of practitioner skills, providing training in project management and business skills needed for professional practice, including consultancy. The assessment strategy was designed with input from HM Prison Service to replicate tasks faced in professional settings, such as preparing expert witness statements and case formulations, and engaging in reflective practice.
