You should complete this questionnaire if you are proposing a new Masters programme in Health Psychology for accreditation against stage one of the requirements for Chartered Membership of the Society, and full membership of the Division of Health Psychology. A separate self-evaluation questionnaire should be completed for international provision.
The questionnaire is split into two sections:
Section A asks for key information about the award(s) you are submitting for accreditation, including details of who we should contact if we have queries about your application.
Section B invites you to self-evaluate your programme(s) against each of our eight programme standards. If you are submitting more than one new programme for accreditation and all of your new awards meet our programme standards in the same way, you may complete a single Section B.
To allow our reviewers to easily navigate your submission and to avoid delays we ask that you submit in the following way:
A main folder should be created using your University name, with a sub-folder then created for each of the Programme Standards i.e. Programme Standard 1, 2 and so forth, each of these folders will sit in your main folder.
Please keep file names and folder structures as short as possible as files and structures that are too long may affect the documents being downloaded by our reviewers. The structure should be no more than 3 levels, for example:
University of xx – Programme Standard x – 2.2 Programme Guides – files
We advise that file names be kept at 50 characters with spaces, and label each piece of supporting evidence sequentially in relation to its folder i.e. 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 2.1, 2.2, 2.3.
The SEQ must be submitted as a Word Document and should be contained within its own folder named SEQ, which will sit in the main folder. Please note that we only require one SEQ for all Undergraduate Programmes.
Include a proposed timetable within the SEQ folder. Our standard timetables can be found on our website using the download link below. Our timetables provide a guide for education providers planning for a partnership visit, therefore we are keen for you to propose a timetable that best meets your needs.
For further guidance on the submission process please refer to ‘Accreditation through Partnership: Preparing for a partnership visit’ and the ‘Standards for accreditation’ which can be found on our website at www.bps.org.uk/accreditationdownloads
Please Note that your submission will be returned if the structure does not follow these guidelines.
