What will you learn?

Our outstanding Forensic Psychology Course has been specially written to enable anyone interested in learning about the use of psychological principles to understand the behaviour of criminals, and the value of psychology in detecting crime.

The best news is that this fantastic course requires no previous experience, and has no entry requirements. You just need a passion for the subject!

The course has been designed for someone without any prior knowledge of the subject and will allow the student to study the course at their own pace in their own home, emailed directly to your inbox. This course does not entitle you to work as a Forensic Psychologist, though will give you a solid knowledge base and an invaluable insight of child psychology without investing and committing a sizeable investment and time enrolling onto a college or university programme, the course gives you a great opportunity to test the water, and if you do enjoy it, you have a solid foundation. As after completing this course, you may wish to continue your training with a college or university  to build a platform for your career.

This course is ideal for those that are either complete beginners to the field of Forensic psychology and are considering making a career change to become a Forensic psychologist, with the aim of  getting an insight and understanding of Forensic psychology, or existing Forensic psychologists, teachers, coaches or trainers looking to reinforce their knowledge or to pick up some new skills. This course is also ideal if you are interested in a career in Forensic Psychology, though are unsure if you want to commit yourself financially and time wise to a full Forensic Psychologist qualification.
