What is a PSRB?

Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB) accreditation is a general term used to describe organisations which are authorised to accredit, approve or recognise specific programmes in the context of the requirements of the PSRB.

Why are they important?

A valued feature of the University's undergraduate and postgraduate provision is the number of degree programmes which are accredited by a PSRB. The University aims to ensure that all its programmes which are eligible for PSRB accreditation secure and retain the accreditation. This is just one of many ways the University ensures that professional standards and quality are maintained and that students gain the skills and knowledge required by employers.

A PSRB normally accredits a programme for a specific number of years after which they return to review and re-accredit the programmes for the next period. All PSRB accreditation and review reports are considered at the University's Quality Assurance Committee and monitored by the Board of Governors.

Which Portsmouth programmes are accredited?

Information of the University's PSRBs is held centrally in Academic Standards, Quality and Partnerships. A list of accredited courses is available below.
