Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to process my application?

As a student member, your membership will become active immediately, giving you access to online content and member event pricing after joining. In some cases we may request further information and documentation from you, to help us confirm your chosen membership category.

Why does my student membership run for a year longer than my degree?

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to enjoy the benefits of College membership from your first year at uni all the way to being a registered paramedic in a job - so we include a graduate year of membership, to help kick start your career.

Do you provide different payment options?

Students can pay online by credit card. Given the low student membership fees, it is not cost effective to run different payment methods. If you do not have a credit or debit card and need another way to pay, then please contact Louise on the number below to discuss payment options.
