Forensic Psychology MSc: After you graduate

Where this course will take you

Victoria Walker

Name: Victoria Walker
Course: Forensic Psychology MSc

"I chose to stay at Kingston University after I completed my undergraduate degree as Kingston has a fantastic psychology department with a strong research reputation.

The course offers a placement within a forensic, clinical or research setting for each student. I was allocated a placement in a medium security hospital for women in West London, a placement I hugely enjoyed. I was able to complete risk assessments, create and lead an art therapy group, and co-faciliate a CBT/DBT based group.

During the course we also received lectures from professionals in forensic psychology, which exposed us to potential career paths and an opportunity to meet practitioners from different services.

Since completing the course, I have worked as an assistant psychologist in a residential school for children with learning disabilities, and I am currently working as a higher assistant psychologist in the NHS with older adults in the community. I know I would not be working in the position I am now without this course. In particular, the placement aspect gave me the "hands on" experience of assessment and intervention that can be so difficult to gain as an undergraduate."

"I chose to continue to study at Kingston University after completing my undergraduate course in Psychology with Criminology, as I knew what the university and psychology department had to offer.

The course included an organised placement, which took away the stress of finding a suitable placement whilst studying. My placement was at a children's home for young people who had experienced trauma and broken attachments. I think this was one of my favourite parts of the course because I was able to work and learn at the same time. The course content also influenced my decision because it covered topics I was interested in and that were appropriate to my desired career path.

The course helped the application for my current job at a psychiatric hospital. In addition, I often find myself referring back to what I learnt on the course and applying it at work.

I could not have achieved as much as I did without the amazing support from all the lecturers on the course. The lecturers provided detailed feedback and discussions on assignments, which enabled me to learn every step of the way. I will be forever grateful to them all."
