Criminology. Possible Sociology but I think Criminology is better.
You can also try a LLB degree instead of a BSc.
For Example, University of Southampton does Law with Psychology (LLB) it's a Bachelors of Law award. You may be able to go into MSc Forensic Psychology with this undergraduate degree as well.

Why don't you try look into LLB if you're interested? See if the career paths can take you into Forensic Psychology? (I think they should)

Hope this helps : )

Are you saying you want to avoid a Psychology course all together, and obtain a career in Forensic Psychology via some other route? That's not going to happen, unfortunately. At least, not in the UK.

The job title Forensic Psychologist is legally protected in the UK - meaning you can't use it with having taken a postgraduate qualification in Forensic Psychology approved by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). Those postgraduate qualifications all mandate as an entry requirement that you have either an undergraduate degree in psychology, or (if your undergraduate degree is in another subject) that you have a conversion course in psychology. (The undergraduate degree or conversion course, as applicable, must be accredited by the British Psychological Society and confer eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered membership (GBC) of the BPS.)

What stage in your education are you currently? Are you currently doing A levels, or doing an undergraduate degree?
