Hi I’m looking into applying to university to study criminology and psychology with the hopes to go into working in forensic psychology in the future.
I’m currently looking at university’s that so the combined course of psychology and criminology but I don’t know where to place my options.
As a first generation uni student (hopefully) I feel a bit lost despite looking at the rankings and for as much info as possible.
So far I’ve looked into properly-
University of Westminster: crim and psych
LJMU: crim and psych
Manchester met: forensic psych
Nottingham Trent: crim and psych
Salford uni: crim and psych
Can anybody give me an inclination on what order to put them in or if these are very good unis?
Thank you X

I would try to get virtual tours of as many of the uni's as possible and research what the cities are like to live in as a student. Also look at the module specifications for each course and decide which ones look most interesting to you - some may have a placement module or modules that specialise in particular areas which fit with your future plans.

Some MSc courses in Forensic Psychology (which is what you'll have to study afterwards to become an FP) do ask for BSc's that are at least 50% Psychology so take that into consideration when choosing optional modules.

All of the courses are BSc and accredited by the British psychology society (BPS) so the teaching is tailored to be the start to become a chartered psychologist of some kind.
I’ve signed up for as many as I can find and I’ve researched extensively on life/cities/accommodation but I’m still at a loss for where to apply to or which order to put them in

Hi there! It's really good to hear that you are considering applying to Salford. The great thing about our Psychology and Criminology course is that there are lots of opportunities to tailor the course to your interests, including undertaking a work placement and via our extensive list of optional modules that you can choose to study in your second and third year. We specifically have a module in Forensic Psychology which sounds perfect for you if you are hoping to choose that pathway in the future. The best way to find out all you need to know to make your decision would be to sign up to our open day on the 28th November (link here - https://www.salford.ac.uk/undergraduate/open-days). Alternatively, if you can't make it, we'd be happy to pass your details on to the programme leader who would be more than happy to answer any questions you have. Please get in touch with your questions on [email protected] or call 0161 295 4545.Thank you - Social Media Team
