Delivered jointly by UWS and the School of Forensic Mental Health (NHS), this course is the only Scottish Masters programme specialising in forensic mental health.
It offers a unique opportunity to advance your knowledge and enhance your skills. Our MSc has input from the School of Forensic Mental Health* (part of the Forensic Mental Health Managed Care Network in Scotland) by experienced clinicians through development of our course materials. This collaborative nature of the partnership closes the theory-practice gap and brings a fresh and current perspective to the programme in addition to a wealth of practical experience.
Graduates will be equipped with the confidence to excel in any forensic mental health setting. The programme is designed for those who are currently, or who are looking to be employed in a forensic setting—such as a secure hospital, community based service for mentally disordered offenders, the Scottish Prison Service or Police Scotland. It is suitable for professionals with backgrounds in nursing, social care, psychology, occupational therapy, psychiatry, criminal justice and security.
You must possess an appropriate degree in a biological, health, social science, nursing or related subject.
