Membership whilst studying

Student member banner

Student membership is designed to support you as you progress through an ACT qualification. The qualification provides you with quantifiable and assessed skills, whilst your ACT membership provides you with access to the ACT's wider knowledge base and a range of benefits to help advance your career - from resources to help you develop your business and behavioural skills at the ACT Career Hub, to networking opportunities at our events.

Student membership explained

Put simply, student membership means that you need to hold some form of membership of the ACT whilst you study an ACT qualification or take an ACT Assessment. The type of membership you hold will depend on which qualification you are studying for. Take a look at the table below:
