Student reviews

I loved this module!! I so wish I had left it to be my last module before finishing my degree. It opened up a whole new world of forensic psychology to me. I highly recommend it to anyone interested.

I thoroughly enjoyed this module. The content was extremely engaging and I particularly enjoyed the end-of-module assessment around presenting an argument and recommendations for implementation of a therapeutic service in a YOI.

Tutor support was reliable and efficient. At this stage I felt my learning and independent skills were really coming together. The structure of this module really helped. It definitely prepared me for the final module and with my understanding of what was expected at OU level 3.

Undoubtedly, its a challenging module and its really important to put in the hours and stick to the planner where possible. However, I think if you keep up and engage with the materials, you will find it an extremely enjoyable module.
