​​All the following mandatory documentation must be uploaded with application. Any application received without this documentation will not be considered:
   

  • Personal Statement
    Outlining your reasons for applying and how you meet the programme entry requirements. 
  • MSc Forensic Psychology (or BPS stage 1) final Degree Certificate 
    To allow us to validate that you have met the minimum academic entry requirements for the programme. Good quality scanned copies are required.  
  • BSc Psychology (from a BPS accredited course) Degree Certificate. To allow us to validate that you have met the minimum academic entry requirements for the programme. Good quality scanned copies are required. If you have achieved a grade lower than 2:1, transcript is also required.

  • References
    Two completed references from two ​qualified Forensic Psychologists who have clinically supervised you, and are able to comment in detail on your applied practice, skills and experience of Forensic Psychology. Please only use the Applicant Reference Letter Template, which can be downloaded and forward to your nominated referees.  References will only be accepted within this format.   

  • CV
    Applicants are welcome to upload a current CV with their application to allow expansion on their work history, educational achievement and skills. This is not a mandatory requirement and so won't be labelled as such in the document upload section of the online application.


The above mandatory documentation will be used to assess your suitability for invitation to the Assessment Centre and is required with your application to inform our decision making. Therefore, we strongly advise applicants to start seeking references well before the closing date to ensure that all the documentation is available before applying.  

As most communication regarding applications is via email, we strongly advise applicants to provide an email address that is checked regularly.

Alternatively, the Programme Director, Nic Bowes can be contacted on: nbowes@cardiffmet.ac.uk.  

Due to the volume of applications received and limited Assessment Centre spaces, late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
