This programme is designed to help professionals currently working in applied settings, including forensic mental health, the Police, Social Services, and the National Offender Management Service, to develop skills relevant to their practice.

Two routes are available through this programme. One is for practitioners working directly with offenders or victims and involves working on a detailed case study. The second focuses on new developments in forensic psychology and forensic linguistics which apply to the investigation and prosecution of serious crimes. Applicants for the second route do not need to be working directly with victims or offenders.
