    So in 2017 I will graduate from Coventry having studied a joint psychology course. Going into my final year, I have done alright, averaging at 68% at the moment. In my final year I plan to focus on my studies 100% and hopefully graduate with 1st.

    I am fairly academic person with broad range of interests which include philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, languages, criminology and ethics. Ideally I would like to do masters that allows me to combine psychology and philosophy, or with a neuroscience element. This would be harder since my background does not fully match brain stuff.

    When I applied to my Bachelor's I had my heart set on a career of forensic psychologist. (Thats why I decided to minor in criminology.) I would still like to do something related to this field but atm my enthusiasm towards this field has tuned down a bit. My goal is academic career and after master's go for Phd.

    I have little more or relevant work and research experience. I have decided to apply for forensic mental health at King's and mental health sciences at UCL. I still have three choices free so I would appreciate loads if somebody could recommend good unis or courses.

    Also, how are my chances with King's and UCL? The entry must be quite competetive.

    Unlike your UCAS application, you are not limited to five Masters course applications. Most unis run their own application system instead of using a central one (although some do use the UNIPASS system). In reality, your only limit is the number of references your academic referees are prepared to write.

    Sorry that doesn't help, but on the other hand, neither do you have to come up wih three more courses if only two appeal. You can apply to those two and if rejected, you will then be able to apply for others - your "insurance" choices, if you will.
