The article analyses the results of the study of partial aspects of professional self-determination of future psychologists as a basis for the success of their professional development. The relevance of the studied problem is due to the necessity of optimizing the personal and professional development of future psychologists at the stage of professional training. The empirical research of the psychological foundations of the professional development of future psychologists is carried out with 57 first-year students of Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University. Methods of questionnaires, ranking, averages and qualitative data analysis were used. The results of the analysis show that the leading motives for choosing the psychological profession by students is the interest in this science, the recognition of the prestige of the profession of a psychologist alongside attitudes and viewpoints of close people. The desire to help people occupies a middle place in the ranking of professional self-determination's motives. The first-year students almost do not identify the chosen profession with the vocation and their own abilities. There was the predominance of carriers with an average level of propaedeutic professional self-esteem among the respondents. The sample of first-year students with high propaedeutic self-esteem is 37%. It was identified that only 36% of the surveyed students consider their professional self-determination to be successful. The same number of first-year students marks it as contradictory. However, none of the respondents suppose their choice to be wrong or imposed by other people. It was also revealed that the most important factors in the success of professional development of future psychologists in their vision are their own motivation and efforts, striving for a balance of educational theory and practice, competence and demanding teachers. Self-education and self-development as well as examples of psychologists’ work were found to be insufficiently relevant for the successful professional development of the respondents.
