    I've heard a few things and apparently you need to do the 3 year psychology degree and then a further 1 year to do a masters in forensic psychology (the field I would want to go into) and then you do a further 2 years work experience and then you're qualified to become a forensic psychologist. I was wondering if anybody who has experienced this first hand could give me some advice. Thanks!

    I got told by Winchester uni you don't? You only need a PhD if you want to go higher up in psychology

    There are currently two routes for forensic psychology - both take the same length of time to be qualified in theory, but jobs/placements are hard to come by. There is the masters as you said or the doctorate route
