If you are a student at one of our accredited schools you can enjoy a range of benefits including free insurance.

Membership benefits

We offer a wealth of resources to support you through your training for a nominal one-off fee of £40:

  • Free student insurance
  • Be a part of our CSTA community
  • Free subscription to our magazine, The Fulcrum
  • Access to members’ resource centre and magazine archive
  • Regular email bulletins
  • Attend our AGM
  • Access to CSTA support and advice

Upon graduation you will only pay £100 for your first year’s full membership.

Almost everyone involved in the CSTA is a volunteer or near-volunteer, which enables us to keep subscriptions among the lowest for a professional body.
