Hi, i am doing Psychology undergraduate with modules in HR (international student) for the first two years. But my university says that if i need BPS accreditation, i must do a single honours from next year onwards i.e. stop doing HR modules.
My long-term career plan is to be a psychologist. But for some years after graduation i want to work in an HR role to get some money for my masters and help sustain myslef during my PHD. I will also be able to see whether i enjoy HR so i might change my mind afterwards. (1) Being a non-British, what would be the worth of BPS accreditation outside the UK, say UAE?
(2) I know about conversion courses but not sure how much does one costs if a joint psychology undergradute degree has to be converted to a BPS accredited one.
(3) I am confused whether not having the title of my degree as joint honours in 'Psychology and HR' as opposed to single honours 'Psychology' reduces my chances of getting into HR? Although i know that many psychology gradautaes do go into HR but agian competition is fierce. I am mostly looking for gradaute schemes for this purpose.
Any personal experience, advice or insight regarding the two questions will be greatly appreciated.

You don't need to have studied HR to work in HR. It doesn't give you an advantage of getting on to a grad programme either.
Your issue with HR will be finding a grad programme that will sponsor a work permit. They are far and few between.
