Clinical Forensic Psychology MSc
The IoP was a place I was really keen to study at when I was doing my undergraduate degree at King's. It's hugely inspirational that many people here are world leading experts in their fields and the students are all of such high quality.
I'm doing this MSc as a preparatory year before I begin a PhD in September. My PhD will be broadly on the topic of clinical forensic psychology, so this course fitted perfectly as an introduction to the topic.
The course includes a 75 day clinical placement where students take the role of honorary assistant psychologist two days a week. This aspect was a big attraction as I have aspirations to complete a doctorate in clinical psychology after my PhD studies. The clinical placement so far has been a fantastic experience, allowing me to see first-hand how a secure forensic psychiatric service operates. This placement has been complemented by excellent teaching which translates directly to the work I do.
I now have a place to complete a 3 year PhD with the Biomedical Research Centre at the IoP for which I will be collecting data at Broadmoor Hospital looking to identify biomarkers of treatment outcomes in mentally disordered violent offenders. Following this, I hope to train as a clinical psychologist.
