Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies (PSRBs)

Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies (PSRBs)

What is a PSRB?

Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB) accreditation is a general term used to describe the accreditation, approval or recognition of specific courses by bodies such as the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the British Psychological Society (BPS).

Through the accreditation process, the University must satisfy a PSRB that the learning and achievement by students meets the professional benchmarks of the particular PSRB. The award of an accredited degree may allow a graduate to qualify for a particular type of employment and, in some cases, gain exemption from PSRB examinations.

Why are they important?

The University recognises that PSRB accreditation is an important dimension of academic standards, providing additional external reference points and adding value in terms of employability. Accordingly, PSRB accreditation reports are considered in a manner similar to external examiner reports and may take place alongside, or as a substitute for, periodic review.

Which courses are accredited?

Information about the PSRB accreditations held by the University is listed on the PSRBs Register, which is maintained by our Quality Enhancement Unit. 

For further information on the PSRB accreditation procedure, take a look at our Quality Manual - Chapter 7. Alternatively, please contact Nikolett Szabo at n.szabo@londonmet.ac.uk. Nikolett will be able to respond to your query or refer you to the appropriate person in the School.
