    No, I think psych and criminology at RHUL would give you a more robust academic experience and therefore will be more likely to support postgrad applications relating to forensic psychology. Though, if you feel that particular academics at Kingston might make it worthwhile to study there, do consider that.

    However, it is important that you consider Course X and Course Y by the modules on offer and not by the topic name -- I know criminology at Durham has just as much sociological content as a criminology/sociology course anywhere else. Just the degree name is different! So do look at what separates Kingston and RHUL substantively; also look to see if there are any placements available, as these can be crucial for specific psychology postgrad courses.
    I will, thank you!

    Would RHUL be great for someone who wants to work in Law Enforcement (police officers, FBI, Department of Homeland Security, etc...)??

    Well, working in US federal agencies requires US citizenship. It is a long and indirect route.

    UK, NCA and regional forces, sure. All of them would be sufficient; but you don't need a policing degree, as an English Language degree would impress similar amounts. After all, training takes you from zero knowledge to working-copper knowledge. Bear in mind by the time you graduate it is likely that new policing recruits will need to possess a degree/or undergo a degree apprenticeship -- which makes a whole lot of sense, given the number of dunderheads currently recruited.

    Great, thank you.
