The Graduate Certificate in Psychology (passed at Master's qualifying level) plus the Child Development MSc OR Psychology of Education MSc enables students to apply for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

Graduates of this programme often progress to a relevant BPS-accredited Master's programme - Psychology of Education MSc or Child Development MSc - to complete their conversion to psychology and to be eligible to apply for Graduate Basic for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
