    Recently I have been looking into studying my masters in the Netherlands, I would like to do my masters in neuropsychology. Firstly can anybody help me with picking a university? Is doing a MSc Psychology - specialising in Neuropsychology (in the netherlands) as good a degree as say... MSc Human cognitive neuropsychology (in Edinburgh, UK).

    Mainly I want help with accreditation. If I study my masters in the Netherlands, this doesn't give me BPS accreditation, so how do I go about getting a job in England? Will a masters from the Netherlands be 'as good' as a masters from the UK, employability wise?

    Thanks for any help!

    The idea behind the accrditation is to make sure all the content satisfies the BPS requirements. In Netherlands, the relevant professional body of psychologists might have different requirements. If they do, you won't get a BPS. But even if they do, the BPS might still not give you accreditation. If you a psy degree outside UK you need to apply for BPS accreditation which takes time, paperwork (and possibly money).
