CIPD membership

Join as a
Student member

Now that you’ve enrolled onto a CIPD qualification, you need to join us as a Student Member. This will give you access to a host of member benefits and resources to help you with your studies and your career.

You’ll need to be in membership for the duration of studies - from registering your qualification to receiving your certificate. You’ll also need to link your qualification to your membership so we can process your results once submitted by your study centre.
