    What exactly do you mean by Criminal Psychologist? Criminology and Psychology are different degrees and (in terms of forensic/criminal/offender careers) lead to different jobs.

    Do you have an idea of where you would like to work and what type of role you might like to have?

    Oh God I would have loved to do that and in fact I looked into it for a while but instead I am applying to medicine instead. I wanted a better balance of mind and body and I was worried that too much psychology might mess me up.

    I think that is called Forensic Psychology. You see them all the time on real crime programmes on TV. If you fancy working with serial killers, then that must be quite a thrill. When I looked at it I thought the Kingston course (http://www.kingston.ac.uk/undergradu...ic-psychology/) looked quite good. Convenient for me because I live in that neck of the wood but also well set out.
