Hopefully you are now satisfied with your application and are ready to make your submission. You can review your details by using the ‘Previous’ and ‘Next’ buttons.
As a member of the Society you represent professional design practice to the public and you are therefore required to act in accordance with certain principles set out by the Society. You must agree to these before you will be granted membership.
The cost of CSD Student e-membership is £40 for the duration of your course and your membership runs until the end of the calendar year in which you graduate. When you submit your application you will be directed to our secure online WorldPay portal.
Remember, if you are studying on a CSD Accredited or Recognised course your membership is FREE until the end of the calendar year in which you graduate.
Once you have submitted your application you will be granted Student e-membership of the Society and will be sent an email confirming your membership and giving you access to the members’ area and your own online portfolio where you can start enjoying the benefits and services of membership of the professional body for designers.
You will receive an acknowledgement by email, together with a temporary password and a link to your user account where you will be able to set your own password. (Please remember that sometimes generic emails can go to your spam/junk folders.)
