The small print

Student membership rates are available to an individual for a maximum of 5 years within their membership of BAA. This may be continuous from the start of initial training, i.e., an apprenticeship, or interrupted in the case of a FULL member who later undertakes further studies to gain an extended qualification supporting career progression.

Membership as a student will be granted on the production of confirmation of registration on the course, and provided an applicant has not reached the threshold of 5 years as a student member. Previous full or affiliate BAA members should be aware if applying for student membership that the benefits received will align to those available for students only.

Student membership will last for the duration of the training course or up to the 5th year that a member has enjoyed student membership.

Upon completion of the training course, BAA offers a further 12 months free membership. It is expected that registration to a regulatory body is obtained between graduation and 31st December for new students. This free year is only available for the first year immediately following course completion.

It is the individual’s responsibility to ensure that they upgrade their membership as appropriate. If the BAA does not receive the necessary registration details by 1st January in the year following graduation, the BAA will suspend their membership.
