Hi,
I'm currently doing a Psychology Conversion Masters and we have been told we won't receive our results/transcripts and therefore BPS accreditation before the January after the course is complete.
I was wondering whether any other universities get this done quicker. The course technically finishes in September. Thanks!

You can register with BPS as a student member.

Most degree courses will not have results until a month or so after the course finishes but to have to wait from September until January seems out of the ordinary.
Why does it take that long until receiving final grades?

I really don't know GabiAbi84. I want to find out if this is the case everywhere so I can challenge it if not.
Thanks for your response

You can’t challenge it because other courses do it differently-if that’s when results come out then there’s nothing you can challenge.
Is it a part time course?
Is it modular?

The question is simply, when do they come out from other universities? Do any turn it round more quickly?

The current system prevents people from applying for clinical training!/Assistant Psych jobs/other courses that require results.

And I have answered that question.
You have not answered mine.
You can apply with student membership to BPS

A little bit of sympathy wouldn't go awry.

The person clearly wants to apply to the clinical doctorate and the deadline is 18th November. They feel they are wasting an entire year. To top it off, they then feel they are having to wait months to apply for AP roles.

By BPS they clearly mean GBC, so banging on about the student membership is going to look like you're being obtuse. I met a few people who put student membership on a CV pretending to be GBC, even not for clinical jobs it would be looked upon in a very dim light.

Of course it's an issue for many, many postgrad courses that timings don't line up, but that doesn't make the person feel any better.

FYI masters' results released in November/December/January isn't that unusual.
