The University of Bolton BSc (Hons) Psychology, Psychotherapy and Counselling programme at New York College is now accredited by the British Psychological Society!
The New York College Department of Psychology hosted visitors from the British Psychological Society and our partner the University of Bolton during this week. The BPS held a series of meetings with students, faculty and management and conducted an inspection of NYC premises, including the fully equipped NYC Psychology Research Laboratory. It has been confirmed that the programme at New York College meets the rigorous criteria of the British Psychological Society for course accreditation. The entire NYC course team were commended by the BPS on their “approachability and cohesive way of working as a team and supporting the students”.
This news means that if you graduate from the University of Bolton BSc (Hons) Psychology, Psychotherapy and Counselling undergraduate degree at New York College in Athens, you will be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of BPS. Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) is an essential milestone which demonstrates that a graduate has studied psychology in sufficient depth and breadth to meet the criteria of the BPS.
BPS course accreditation is both an important hallmark of quality for the education provider, that is extensively acknowledged by employers in the field around the world, and also an essential stepping stone for students who are looking to progress to a BPS accredited professional postgraduate training to become a Chartered Psychologist in their chosen field of specialization, for example Clinical Psychology, Health Psychology or Educational Psychology.
