Hi, just wondering if anyone has done an interview for the MSc Forensic Psychology at Kingston University? The email says to prepare a 15 minute presentation on a given topic and to include the background and methodology. Was this interview difficult? What can I expect?

If anyone has been through this process, any advice/help would be greatly appreciated!

I got my conditional offer letter today and mine said the same thing. I hope you get some answers. I was given 2 topics and have to do a research proposal and presentation for 1.

Hi. I got an unconditional offer from another university so I cancelled my interview with Kingston so I don't know what the process would have been like. Sorry I can't help

Hello, mine went really well actually. I had mine on The 30th. I’m yet to here a response. They were just telling me that all the forensic based placement is full, so the placement they would offer would basically be **** in other words. So they were telling me about part time which sounded good tbh. However I’ve got an unconditional offer from Kings to study early interventions in psychosis so I don’t realky know what to do now

Hi there, I will be starting the Early Interventions in Psychosis course in September at KCL. I did my undergrad in Psychology at Kingston and the lecturers for Forensic Psychology were very good; I enjoyed my course very much in general. The two courses definitely do sound quite different to one another and I guess it comes down to what kind of route you want to take after the completion of your Master's! Best of luck with hearing back from Kingston - please feel free to ask if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you in September if you do take the offer from King's!

Thank you for replying😭 well basically I want to become a clinical psychologists now because I don’t want to narrow my options with forensic psych. However I do want to work in a forensic setting focusing on mental health and interventions. So I’m just Trying figure out if once I complete the early interventions in Psychosis course, if I will be able to work in a forensic setting. What’s your thoughts? I did email the director she’s so nice and she’s saying it might be possible to do the placement in a forensic setting. So Im 80% going to take the offer and I have till Friday to do so.

That’s great! Yeah, they basically said the same thing to me about placements too. They did say we could find our own if we could so if I did get in I’d probably try that. Did they say anything about how long it’d take to hear back? I forgot to ask. Oh congratulations about Kings, that sounds so interesting! Good luck making a decision!

No problem! It seems like you don't want to narrow down your options in the future by choosing clin psych now, and not be able to go into forensic either, but at the same time you don't want to limit yourself to only forensic psych either which makes a lot of sense!

I think it seems like a forensic psych with mental health course might be a good idea too? I know King's has one but I believe spaces are full for this year. I think the Early Interventions course is very suitable if you want to pursue a doctorate in clinical psychology, but if I am being completely honest with you, I don't think it's the best option if you want to go into a forensic setting. In the sense that because it's a course that focuses solely on psychosis, I doubt it would be tailored to a clinical forensic/forensic setting but rather simply a clinical setting. Please note that this is just my own personal view and I might be completely wrong - I just think that based on your interest of Forensic Psych and mental health, there are better options out there. However, this doesn't mean that this wont get you into a forensic setting or that you cannot take a different route and achieve what you want! I believe almost all forensic specialisation courses, including the one on the BPS website, although I may be wrong, want you to have a Forensic psych MSc accredited by the BPS. What I would recommend is emailing both Kingston and King's, and ask them for their course content including lectures if possible, that way you can see what is taught and whether it is of interest to you and your future goals?

What you could potentially do is keep your options broad at the moment, which is what I am doing myself as well, and if you decide that after this course you still want to go into forensic psych, you could then complete a BPS accredited MSc in that after? But I understand that it probably sounds quite long... I'd definitely recommend taking a look on the BPS website as they have a lot of useful information.

Yes, the course director is so lovely and helpful! I wish you all the best whatever decision you make

Hi, I was just wondering whether you did get on to the course and how it was if you did carry on with your studies at Kingston? I have an interview next week, but I’m torn between Kingston and goldsmiths.

Just want to know really what you did for placement and how you find the teaching at kingston? Are they helpful etc?

Thanks in advance if you reply!

Hello,

I got onto the course but I choose to go to Kings instead. I applied really late so they were giving me the option to do part time or do a placement that was not really forensic related however l did get a placement offer in broadmoor which I was really surprised About! But yeah I didn’t end up going to Kingston.

I hope I provided a little bit of clarity even though it wasn’t much.

Good luck x
