  • Access to our online community to connect and share ideas with other psychology students

Check out the benefits of your registration bellow


Membership of professional organisaitons is always helpful - and for students it’s often free too!

Benefits include careers advice including access to information about internships and placements, and the ability to move from student membership to a more professional grade once you have graduated and gone through some kind of assessment process.

For some careers (psychology, accounting etc) membership is a prerequisite for being able to practise.


Are there specific events or resources you’ve found particularly valuable as a psychology student?
