If you have completed either of the following qualifications you need to provide an academic transcript for that qualification only and a document confirming your status for GBC:
These should be attached to your application if possible (see the main Documents page for information on what to do if you do not have the documents in time). If you have applied before and provided the appropriate documents, you should be able to copy these into your current application.
If you are currently studying for one of these qualifications, please see the Exceptions section at the end of this page.
You need to provide an academic transcript for your GBC-accredited qualification only.
Universities use different terms for this document. Some refer to it as a Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR); some refer to it as a Diploma Supplement; and some refer to it as a Transcript. This should be issued to you by a member of staff at your university (in other words it should not be a printout you create yourself from your student account). The transcript should cover all the years of your course if possible (and at least the last two years of marks for an undergraduate degree) and be the final document issued once all your results have been verified (not an interim document issued part-way through your study).
The transcript should include:
We do not need the following:
However, some course centres may have further requirements for documents. Please see the Courses section for details of the requirements of individual course centres.
If your university cannot provide you with a transcript you will need a letter from them confirming this. If possible, this letter should come from the Central Student Records Department of your university. We suggest that you contact your university as soon as possible to give them time to check their records.
You need to provide a document that confirms your status for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (see the Entry Requirements section if you need further information about GBC). A document that only mentions the British Psychological Society (BPS) without confirming GBC is not sufficient.
Please provide one of the following:
"I confirm that [Student Name] successfully completed the following course at [University Name]:
Course Title: [e.g. BSc in Psychology]
Period of Study: [e.g. 09/2016 to 07/2019]
This course was accredited at this time by the British Psychological Society, and the student successfully completed all the necessary modules for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership."
If you are doing a GBC-accredited degree or conversion course and you will complete your qualification next spring/summer, you do not need to provide an academic transcript or confirmation of GBC with your application. Please see our "Should I apply this year?" page for more information.
If you are doing a GBC-accredited degree or conversion course and you will complete your qualification this autumn please see our "Should I apply this year?" page for more information.
If you have UK or Irish qualifications but none of them are accredited for GBC, or you have completed the BPS Qualifying Exam, you will need to provide the same documents as applicants with international qualifications.
The Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) and the British Psychological Society (BPS) recognise each other's undergraduate accreditation procedures so if your qualification makes you eligible for graduate membership of the PSI it will also have covered enough psychology for GBC.
