Description

Our taught Masters (MSc) programmes have been recognised by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as meeting the nationally recognised criteria for preparation training for PhD research. The MSc in Forensic Psychology at Kent is also accredited by The British Psychological Society as providing the first (academic) year of professional training for those who pass the course and wish to qualify as Chartered Forensic Psychologists. The School has a strong track record of attracting ESRC research studentship funding, which involves partnerships with external organisations such as Age Concern England and the Equality and Human Rights Commission and collaborative studentships with partners such as People United.

The University of Kent has an excellent international reputation for its research in social psychology. This was recognised in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise by special "flagging" of this group (equivalent to a 5* rating). The School was originally established as a small social psychology research unit, which became the Institute for Social and Applied Psychology. Now, within the School of Psychology our research activities include intergroup relations, small group processes, decision making, persuasion, attitudes, communication and language, health behaviour, forensic psychology, work-related behaviour, and social aspects of development.

Course tutors include academics and experts who work in the media, the health service and other applied settings. The MSc is recognised by the ESRC as a basis for PhD research.
