28–31 July 2022 at Cumberland Lodge, Windsor, UK

 

For the first time, the International Centre for Research in Forensic Psychology (ICRFP) is hosting a postgraduate research (PGR) summer school programme.

The ICRFP summer school is a unique opportunity for students with a passion for forensic psychology to develop academic skills and build connections with other forensic psychology PGRs.

The ICRFP summer school experience

Over the course of the four days, PGRs will engage in seminars, workshops and social activities that aim to foster academic skills and build collaborations.

Some of the academic sessions will be delivered by senior experts who are internationally recognised in the field of forensic psychology. These sessions will include practical skills workshops to better prepare PGRs for the next stage of their careers, as well as keynotes summarising some of the most recent developments in specific areas of forensic psychology.

On the final day, PGRs will each deliver a poster presentation about their PhD research. This event is intended to allow attendants to disseminate their research and receive comments from their peers and other delegates.

The programme will also include social events and activities focused on enjoying the amenities provided by Cumberland Lodge, including an afternoon visit to Windsor Great Park and Savill Garden.

Eligibility

Students applying to the ICRFP summer school must be enrolled on a PhD programme (in the UK or abroad) and must be conducting a project within the area of forensic psychology. International applicants are also welcome to apply. 

Attendees can be at any stage of their PhD work (from first to final year students). Registrations from Early Career Researchers in Forensic Psychology will also be considered.

We are looking for students who are:
  • Passionate about their research and the field of forensic psychology
  • Are looking to expand their professional network and establish connections with other PGRs

One bursary is available for an applicant from a lower socioeconomic background. This bursary will cover attendance costs.

The summer school will run from 28–31 July 2022 at Cumberland Lodge in Windsor, UK.

Cost

The cost of participating in the summer school is £249 for the four days.

The cost includes meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and accommodation (shared rooms – 2 beds per room). Applicants can request a single room at a slightly higher cost of £498.
