For full details of our benefits please see the membership benefits page.
As a Student or Affiliate member you are not professionally accredited. We do not assess your technical competence and you are not expected to adhere to the Code of conduct - but we do expect you to support it and work towards it. You do not need to supply references.
You can continue as a Student member for up to one year after your graduation date regardless of your employment status. We will then automatically transfer you to Affiliate member or you can consider upgrading to be an accredited member.
If you wish to re-join CIfA at a non-accredited grade you can do so by making an online payment below and we will request further details from you. If you were previously a Student member and are no longer studying you will need to join at Affiliate grade.
You can apply to join, and pay your subscription fee for the remainder of the current financial year, at the same time using the PayPal link below. A PayPal account is not necessary, you can pay by credit or debit card and fill in your details manually.

Once we have processed your application we will ask you to check that your details are up-to-date and ask you to sign and return the declaration form in order to complete your membership. Once we have received these documents we will send you a welcome pack, which will contain your membership card and certificate.
Please note at busier times it can take up to a week to process an application and send confirmation to complete your membership. If you haven't heard anything in two weeks please get in touch.
To speed up the process you can complete the Student or Affiliate application form AND make payment below. Once we have received the payment and application form we will have everything we need and we will send you a welcome pack containing your membership card and certificate
