This qualification is now closed to new enrolments.

It will close completely on Friday 29 May 2026 to allow current candidates five years to complete.

This means that all candidates enrolled on this version of the qualification will need to have completed the qualification by 29 May 2026.

Anyone who has not passed all four Core Roles by Friday 29 May 2026 will be considered to have failed the qualification. No extensions can be given.

It is therefore important that all candidates build in adequate time to their plans to allow for any personal circumstances and resubmissions, so that all work is submitted and assessed as competency demonstrated prior to the closure point.

If you are considering whether to train as a forensic psychologist, please visit the new webpage to learn more about the revised Qualification in Forensic Psychology (Stage 2) which opens to new enrolments from 1 July 2021.
