Making the most of your membership
We recommend you apply to become a BCS Student member as soon as you enrol so that you can take full advantage of the development opportunities available to you through your membership.
As a BCS Student member you’ll have access to a wide range of career services, professional development tools and networking opportunities, as well as 20% discount across our BCS bookshop.
You could tap into the knowledge and experience of a BCS mentor, perhaps a post-grad student or newly-qualified practitioner to guide your next steps. Or connect with the global IT community at one of our specialist groups, UK branches or international sections which include hubs in Sri Lanka and Mauritius.
