    My ideal job has always been a criminal psychologist. My initial thought was to join a Psychology in Criminal Behaviour course at uni, which I have got an offer for, as this is my main interest. However, would this leave me too restricted in terms of job opportunities when I leave uni? One of my offers is just a psychology course. Would I be better off doing this, and then an extra year of specialised criminal psychology afterwards? Thanks!

    Are you planning to become a chartered Forensic (criminal) Psychologist? Is your degree accredited by the BPS?

    I only ask because some of these joint degrees which have Psychology in the title, aren't always accredited - which is essential for becoming chartered as a Psychologist. There are other careers in the forensic world that are health/therapy/psychology based but don't require the same accreditation.

    If you're not sure, you can link me to the course website (by PM if you prefer).
