Why join as a Student member?

Student membership entitles you to a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Access to information to help keep you up to date on current topics through relevant publications (quarterly electronic In Practice magazine, e-newsletter and policy briefings).
  • Get involved with your local Member Networks: our geographic section events are regionally based and run by a committee of volunteer members who organise local talks, workshops, seminars, field trips and social events across the year.
  • Our Mentoring platform can help you with your career and professional development by matching you with the perfect mentor based on your goals.
  • Develop your skills and knowledge and progress your career through discounted rates on our training and events programme, including conferences and webinars.
  • An online tool to help you record your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) whilst building on what you learn during your studies. For example, if you read relevant literature, take part in a webinar, go to an event, or volunteer, you can record it here.
  • A Member Assistance Programme where you can access an extensive package of support, including telephone advice lines, counselling services and a website on topics such as debt, stress management and mental health.
  • Add being a member to your CV and boost employability (some employers will specifically ask that you are, or are eligible to become, a member of CIEEM).

Becoming  a Student member will grant you access to a wealth of opportunities to network with experienced professionals and potential employers, giving you a valuable insight into the sector and its various career options. Find out more about becoming an ecologist or environmental manager.
