It does - you need bps accreditation for many career paths in psychology and if you wanted to continue further education. It would be better to have it than not to have it as if you wanted to apply for NHS jobs, bps accreditation is a requirement.

If you want to eventually become a practitioner psychologist you 100% need an accredited undergraduate degree. Accreditation is needed to get onto masters or doctoral level qualifications. If not, you'd have to do a conversion course which is an additional year of study.

Other roles you can go into with a psychology degree may not require accreditation but it's better safe than sorry as you never know when your career plans may change or what jobs will ask for.

Hi there,

Do you have an idea of what career you want to go into? Some careers for psychology require you to have a BPS accredited degree and therefore it is alot easier if you do a psychology degree that is accredited by the BPS. If you do one that isn't accredited and you wanted to go into a career that needed accreditation you will have to do another course to gain accreditation by the BPS. When I first was looking at universities, I wanted to make sure that the degree is accredited as it saves me extra time and hassle after finishing the degree

I hope this helps and if you have any questions, please let me know!

As advised above, having a BPS accredited degree is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist in one of eight areas recognised by the British Psychological Society. If you think you'd prefer to save time in the future you may want to consider choosing a course that is?
