Forensic Psychology

Forensic psychology is the study of the psychology of crime and behaviour. Over ten weeks join some of the UK's leading experts in forensic psychology and go beyond what you see on TV.

Forensic Psychology research at Kent and all forensic-related teaching operates through our newly established Centre of Research and Education in Forensic Psychology or CORE-FP as it is more informally known.
