Who can become a Graduate Member?
Any student who has graduated from one of the Institute’s ‘Qualifying Degree Courses’. If you graduated some time ago, it is possible that your course was previously accredited by the Institute but is now not listed – please contact us if you think this is the case.
How long can I be a Graduate Member for?
You would normally be a Graduate Member for three years, at which point you will have gained sufficient experience to be eligible to progress to Registered Membership. To do this you must be able to demonstrate the sort of work you have been doing in ergonomics and human factors and have worked for a year under the supervision of a mentor, who is a Registered Member or Fellow of the Institute. This involves keeping a log of the work you undertake during your three years as a Graduate. It is important to start this process as soon as you become a Graduate Member, so that you have all the necessary records when you come to apply for Registered Membership. You should read the information about Registered Membership as soon as you become a Graduate Member.
How much does it cost?
The current subscription rates for a new Graduate Member are £62 per year for the first two years after graduation, then £76 for the third year and onwards. In order to continue paying these preferential rates, please consider paying by direct debit after your initial subscription, otherwise if you pay by cheque or debit/credit card, a fee of £8 will be added.
How do I apply?
Simply complete the application form and submit evidence of your graduation with it.
