    I am currently studying my diploma. Does this mean I need to apply for associate membership and then upgrade when my studies are complete?
    Cheers,

      Hi Naomi-

      The Diploma usually incorporates a PDC, which is the criterion for membership. This is often awarded after the first semester of study. You can apply for ordinary membership, on the basis that as a Diploma student, you will shortly achieve a PDC, if you haven’t already qualified.

      Cheers
