Hi Nmsx

Sorry for the delay in replying to your post. I've been sent some information about preparing for your interview by our Psychology department.

Hope it helps

Chris - NTU rep

Preparing for your interview

In preparation for your interview please ensure you have read, and are familiar with, the MSc Forensic Psychology course content, including the modules you will study on the course. You will also need to be familiar with the course assessment methods and delivery modes. This information can be found on the course page on the NTU website.

Written assessment

On the interview day you'll be asked to complete a 500 word reflective essay on your knowledge of forensic psychology, your motivation for undertaking the course and the challenges you may encounter.

You'll be expected to demonstrate reading around the subject of forensic psychology and working with offenders and victims, and the British Psychological Society Guidance on Conduct and Ethics for Students.

On the day of the interview you won't be able to use any notes, but you are expected to have considered and thought about this task prior to the interview day.

You'll be allocated 30 minutes to complete the task. You will be allowed to use an English dictionary for this task. If you need specific resources please let us know prior to your interview day. This work will form an assessment of your literacy skills.

You' ll be expected to have read the British

Psychological Society Practice Guidelines before your interview as you'll be asked questions relating to it on the day. This document can be found at:

www.bps.org.uk/news-and-policy/practice-guidelines

Group exercise

Following the written assessment you'll be required to participate in a small group discussion. You'll be given a situation and asked to discuss your reaction, thoughts and any potential action you might take in the situation. You'll be observed by a panel consisting of a lecturer and forensic psychologist. Your performance within the group exercise will be assessed and will be considered as part of the individual formal interview.

Individual interview

The final part of the process will be a 30 minute individual interview, conducted by a member of the forensic psychology teaching staff.

How you will be selected

The following criteria will be used to assess your performance on the interview day:

• understanding of forensic psychology and its application and a motivation to utilise the MSc Forensic Psychology within a suitable profession;

• ability to identify personal qualities and consider your own attitudes, values and behaviour in a mature, honest and reflective manner;

• ability to communicate effectively, including through spoken English;

• awareness of issues relating to offenders and victims;

• ability to manage study at Masters level; and

• a pass for the written test, group task and the formal interview.
