Students are defined as:

  • Those pursuing the Society's Diploma or other Cosmetic Science related course ultimately leading to Associate Membership of the Society.
  • Those who, in the opinion of the Membership Committee, have gained the required academic qualifications and who are gaining, or actively seeking to gain, approved experience in order to qualify for admission to Membership or Associate Membership of the Society.
  • At the time of their election to Student Membership, Students must have a minimum of two scientific subjects of the General Certificate of Secondary Education, or a recognised equivalent.

Membership of this grade is temporary: it covers only the period that a candidate for Associate Membership is under education. All Student Memberships are reviewed at the end of the course. Re-election is only permitted if the Membership Committee is satisfied of the Student's ultimate intention to become a member: all Bye-Laws concerning Student Membership are subject to the discretion of Council.
