Shape your future career
Student Membership shows you’re committed to your professional future. It gives you the strength of CIPD support for your study success, and works with CIPD qualifications to put you on the path to professional recognition.
As a Student Member, you’ll be equipped for study success. You’ll benefit from professional content, study guides, and tips for your assessments. You’ll be part of the CIPD community where you can network and learn from the experience of senior professionals, as well as connect with fellow Student Members for friendly support.
This grade could be for you if …
- You’re currently studying or are about to study a CIPD qualification.
- You may be looking for your first role in the people profession, or you could already be working within a people team.
- You could be working full or part-time alongside your studies.
When you complete your studies, you’ll become a Foundation Member or Associate Member.
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. Only by linking your qualification to your membership, can we process your results once submitted by your study centre.
