The UK Student Forum is an advisory body set up to give ICSA feedback on the UK student experience, and act as a sounding board to the learning team about how the institute can enhance what it offers.


The UK Student Forum consists of nine student members to best represent a wide cross-section of the student body including ICSA qualifying programme and short course students, masters students, university graduates, people becoming a governance professional as their second or third career and those with a mix of age, background and gender. There are also three ex-officio members of the ICSA team.

The UK Student Forum meets twice a year, shortly after each exam session. The next meetings will take place in July 2019 and December 2019.
