If you are a student at one of our accredited colleges in the UK you are entitled to free student membership.


  • Free to join
  • Free subscription to The Fulcrum
  • Free student insurance
  • CST community
  • Support and resources

Upon graduation you will only pay £100 for your first year of membership, a reduction of £59 from the annual membership fee.

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.
