BPS accreditation for our Psychology Department

The British Accreditation Society Accredited

The Psychology Department at the University of Sheffield International Faculty is the first in Greece and in the region to be granted the prestigious accreditation of the British Psychological Society (BPS) for the undergraduate (BSc in Psychology) programmes it offers. 

The British Psychological Society (BPS) is the representative body for psychology and psychologists in the UK and promotes excellence and ethical professional practice and education. Accreditation is the means by which the Society reaches a view on whether psychology courses are suitable to support students’ achievement of learning outcomes, and are supported by an appropriate resource base. The Society approved for the first time last year an International accreditation scheme for programmes offered abroad.

Our Bachelor programme and the provision offered to students meets the rigorous criteria set by BPS. The BPS accreditation is a definite hallmark of quality for psychology. It is of immense importance of the recognition of our graduates’ professional rights and indicates that the programmes support quality learning, are well-resourced, and cover in depth the curriculum endorsed by the Society. The BPS accreditation team commended the Psychology Department for their student-centered approach, their engagement with the community, their interactive teaching in class, the feedback provided to students, the robust tutoring system, their proactive approach to employability, and for acting as a regional hub for dissemination of best Teaching & Learning practice.
