Student Members

As a student on one of our accredited undergraduate or conversion courses this is your first step into membership of the society.

Student membership provides several benefits, including the chance to transfer to graduate membership and continue your development as a member of the BPS.

As a Student Member you'll get:

  • Access to dozens of events each year

    Including careers events where you can learn from psychology professionals.

  • Subscriptions to our monthly magazine, The Psychologist

    You'll also get access to Psych-Talk, which is written by our students for our students.

  • Access to the student online community

    Connect with other psychology students across the UK, share ideas and resources and discuss the latest advances.

  • Automatic enrolment to your local branch

    Meet with psychologists in your area to expand your network and share ideas.

  • The chance to become a student rep

    Help support your fellow students and spread the word about BPS membership.

  • Great savings and discounts

    Membership entitles you to money off a huge range of textbooks, events and more.

Student membership is open to everyone studying on a BPS accredited undergraduate degree or conversion course and can cost as little as £26.

The society’s subscription year runs from January to December and future subscription payments are due in January regardless of when you first joined. A full year’s subscription is always required upon admission to membership.

If you join between January – June you will be charged the yearly rate which will all be allocated to this year’s subscription.

If you join between July – September you will be charged the yearly rate but half the payment will be carried forward reducing the amount due from you for the following year.

There are a number of ways you can pay your subscription, such as by online card payment (preferred), bank transfer, or by phone.
