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.


The Student Committee represents student members of the society in matters pertaining to education, discipline and policy.

We promote communication between student members through the annual student conference and through international links with psychology students and associations world-wide via the European Federation of Psychology Student's Association (EFPSA).

We also organise a range of events throughout the year, such as seminars and networking opportunities, and are responsible for the publication of the PsychTalk magazine.
