SSEHS courses secure accreditation


The Royal Society of Biology and the British Psychological Society have accredited courses delivered by the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences. 


Royal Society of Biology accreditation for Loughborough degrees

The Human Biology BSc (Hons) degree has received accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology following an independent and rigorous assessment. This accreditation recognises that the degree programme contains a solid academic foundation in biological knowledge and key skills, and prepares graduates to address the needs of employers.

The Biological Sciences BSc (Hons) degree has been awarded interim accreditation, acknowledging the academic excellence on offer in the biosciences, and highlighting that the degree programme is educating the research and development leaders and innovators of the future. Following graduation of the first cohort of students from the programme, the programme may be awarded full accreditation.


Psychology in Education degree accredited by the BPS

The Psychology in Education BSc (Hons) course, launching in October 2021, has now secured accreditation from the British Psychological Society (BPS).

The course offers a unique opportunity to develop both an understanding of psychological theory, and how it can be applied in the context of education to help children, young people and adults learn.

A BPS accredited degree allows you to pursue a career in Psychology and is normally necessary for any postgraduate qualification. Accreditation is essential for students who are looking to progress to become a Chartered Psychologist after graduation.

The Psychology BSc (Hons), Psychology with Criminology BSc (Hons) and Sport and Exercise Psychology BSc (Hons) are also accredited by the BPS.
