The IoPPN’s new BSc in Psychology, which welcomes its first cohort of students this September, was praised as having a number of strengths in its accreditation by the British Psychological Society (BPS), the professional body for psychologists.

The Society emphasized the research-led teaching and expertise at the IoPPN as valuable features of the course, and noted that the specialist equipment and physical resources were of a high standard. It described the integration of core areas based on themes as being well-thought through, and also commended the career development and potential use of internships. The new BSc is designed, taught, and supported by a wide range of researchers from across the IoPPN and the wider King’s academic community from neuroscience to health, social science to the humanities. Students are taught in newly created teaching spaces designed specifically for the course at the Guy’s Campus, as well as at Denmark Hill in the IoPPN main building.

Dr Mike Aitken, Programme Director of the BSc Psychology comments:

"We were very pleased with the feedback we received from the Society following their accreditation review. It was particularly pleasing that they chose to highlight the strengths of the programme, including the excellent teaching and research infrastructure available to the students; the well-thought out and innovative course structure; the world-leading researchers who contribute to the teaching; and the myriad of opportunities for interaction with cutting edge translational research and clinical practice offered through our links with King’s Health Partners and the Maudsley Hospital.”

He continues: “It’s a psychology course designed to exceed all the standard requirements of the British Psychological Society for an accredited programme, and that means it provides an excellent preparation for further training in clinical, forensic or health psychology; or it could be a training for further research in Psychology and an academic career; or we are hoping, an excellent preparation for just about any career you could imagine.”
