Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

Graduates from this course may go on to study forensic psychology at postgraduate level in order to become a Chartered Forensic Psychologist. Chartered Forensic Psychologists may be employed in prisons, rehabilitation units, and secure hospitals working with criminals. This involves assessing prisoners, formulating treatment and rehabilitation plans, evaluating their progress, and making expert recommendations to the parole board and in criminal proceedings. They can earn between £20,000-£70,000.

Forensic psychologists are usually employed in prisons, by courts, and in secure hospitals. However, many of our graduates go on to follow non-psychology career routes in management, social work, public services, human resources, and teaching due to the highly transferable skills you will gain.
