You should have at least a 2:1 degree which provides the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
Students who do not meet the criteria may be eligible under the following conditions:
- evidence of practical experience in a relevant area;
- an additional qualification which is relevant to health psychology;
- evidence of particular achievements at undergraduate level which indicate strengths in health psychology.
For any accredited psychology masters degree, an honours degree giving the BPS Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) is an essential entry qualification. You should include with your application evidence that you have GBC or are currently studying on a course accredited to provide GBC.
Evidence of your GBC status may be either 1) a copy of a the letter from the British Psychological Society granting graduate membership and or GBC; or 2) a statement by your Course Leader confirming that your current programme of study, if completed, will lead to GBC. If you have already completed a degree which does not provide GBC it is suggested that you contact the BPS to discuss this matter. Unfortunately we cannot process your application until we have evidence that you have or are likely to obtain GBC by the start date of the course.
If your current degree does not provide you with GBC you should consider taking our Psychology MSc which will provide you with GBC.
