This course belongs to the area of legal and forensic studies and goes towards meeting the growing demand for specialist professionals in the field of psychological assessment, both in the public sector (at local, regional and/or national levels) and in private centres, and the need to adapt the training these professionals receive to the functions they will have to fulfill.

The course leads to a graduate diploma that is governed academically by this university, and its holders must go on into legal practice. Therefore, this programme includes both the university-level academic training given by university lecturers and the connection to the professional world through the training provided by professional law practitioners.

This graduate diploma course forms part of the master's degree in Court Psychology and Forensic Psychological Assessment, which consists of two graduate diplomas to be taken separately. Having passed both graduate diploma courses, students can register their master's dissertation and obtain the master's degree.
