What is accreditation?

Accreditation through partnership and collaboration is the process by which the BPS works with education providers to ensure quality standards in education and training are met.

All programmes that are accredited by the society have met rigorous criteria.

This means if you graduate from a BPS accredited undergraduate degree or postgraduate conversion course, you will be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the society.


Why should I take an accredited course?

BPS accreditation is both an important hallmark of quality that is extensively acknowledged by employers in the field, and an essential stepping-stone for students who are looking to progress to become a Chartered Psychologist after graduation.

Taking a BPS accredited course is necessary if you wish to pursue a career in psychology or in the wider psychological workforce.
