About

Gain the skills you’ll need to work safely, ethically and effectively with offenders who pose a risk to others. The Forensic Psychology and Mental Health is offered at Queen Mary University of London.

Overview

Through a combination of taught classes and placement-based learning, you’ll not only learn as a student but also as an active staff member of staff in a forensic psychology and mental health system.

  • Develop the core clinical skills needed to work in forensic psychology and mental health services in the UK and overseas
  • Work on a placement within a forensic setting
  • Receive comprehensive training in research methods and writing
  • Gain a qualification accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS)

What you'll study

This Forensic Psychology and Mental Health at Queen Mary University of London will give you a summary of forensic psychology and mental health care in addition to teaching co-delivered by East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT), a recognised centre of excellence providing forensic care to a complex and diverse population. You will apply your in-class learning to your placement within a forensic setting. 

We offer you a distinctive psychosocial focus, a key component of current Ministry of Justice and Department of Health Policy. This approach helps you to reflect on your own experiences and practice in a way that develops your skills as a clinician, researcher or leader in the field, as well as providing a framework for safe and therapeutic work with offenders.

You’ll also learn to work as part of a multidisciplinary team (MDT) within a forensic setting, and how to work in partnership with other organisations and pathways relevant to forensic mental health, such as the criminal justice system, probation services and local authorities. 

You’ll produce an original thesis, which can be oriented towards clinical or research knowledge. We’ll encourage you to publish and disseminate this work.
