Student membership

Everyone studying for ICSA qualifications becomes a student member, joining our international community of governance professionals from the very start of your studies. Student members receive many of the same benefits as full members, as they work towards their goal of Affiliated or Chartered membership status.

Students who achieve four modules or equivalent on the core qualifying programme may also become Affiliated members.

Students on ICSA validated postgraduate courses have the option of taking up student membership at any point on their course, but we strongly recommend that you are with us from the beginning to get most value from belonging to our community.

Benefits

Student membership is essential for keeping you up-to-date with the latest news, trends and developments in governance that will give you practical insights to supplement your studies. It gives you access to expert support and guidance and to our taster experiences that help to bridge the gap between study and the start of your career in governance.

You also benefit from:

  • Access to local and international networks of governance professionals
  • Regular news, technical guidance, research and consultations
  • An informative and engaging magazine
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Student prices for quality events, training and publications
  • A governance helpline for individual guidance and support
  • The opportunity to participate in ICSA’s mentoring programme
  • A voice for championing the profession and our members to government, regulators and employers

Fees

If you are starting the ICSA qualifying programme, there is a one-off fee to register as an ICSA student and subscription fees are paid annualy. The first payment is due upon registration and is calculated according to the ICSA membership calendar year.
