Each year the Master of Psychology (Forensic) program provides research placements to interns as part of their 1000 hours of supervised practice. There are two ‘blocks’ of placement; the first from approximately March to end of September and the second from August to the end of March of the following year. The number of hours of placement (approximately 250 hours) must be completed within the timeframe (two days minimum placement days per week).

In order to apply for an Intern to aid you in your research, your project must be forensic in nature, recognized by a university or other funding body (and have ethics approval if necessary), and be within the Sydney NSW area. Last year we had numerous applications for placement; please ensure that you clearly identify and explain your project as we ask Intern to choose and prioritize their choices. Please review the basic information for research document here. Generally speaking, the email ‘call out’ for research placements is sent in December for placements to start either in March or September of the following year.

You will note in the application form that AHPRA accredited supervisors are required; if the project supervisors do not meet those criteria, there are still opportunities for UNSW supervising staff to act as supervisors in some cases.

If you are interested in providing a research placement, please do not hesitate to contact Anita McGregor at to discuss and to get onto the email list.
