Re: Registration as a Psychologist
Hi, I'm a BPS member and HCPC registered in the UK and currently going through the process with the FSP myself.
I had to go through the Psychologieberufekommission and firstly get my qualifications made equivalent. This does mean getting all your transcripts from any universities you've studied with and providing the European transfer credits points (ECTS) and Credit accumulation and transfer score (CATS) for the courses you studied on. You'll also need to provide various other bits of paperwork too, which they list on the form.
To join the FSP I needed the certificate from the berufskommission first and then I had to join a local psychology association before I could then join the FSP (my local association processed both memberships together).
As the various groups don't seem to meet too often the process can take a long time. There is also a lot of paperwork and it is somewhat costly too. Unfortunately there does not seem to be any other way than following this process.
If I can help you any further just give me a shout.
