      Covid-19 update

      In response to the HCPC's Covid-19 temporary register, the CSP has opened a temporary qualified membership category to enable final-year students who are near graduation to start practising as band 5 physiotherapists. Find out how to join as a temporary qualified member.

        I'm a CSP student member. What happens when I graduate?

        • As a CSP student member, you are automatically transferred to our graduate affiliate category on reaching the end date of your degree. (This date is provided by your university.)
        • This category is for newly graduated CSP student members who are awaiting HCPC registration.
        • As a graduate affiliate, you can continue to access your membership benefits and services to stay in the loop. This includes access to our networks, library services and the ePortfolio platform (but excludes Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) cover). 
        • You receive three months as a graduate affiliate for free while you wait for your HCPC registration. You will then be charged £5 per month thereafter.
        • As soon as you have your HCPC registration number, you can upgrade to chartered membership by logging into 'Your Account' to renew your membership
        • Members who upgrade receive the first three months of chartered membership for free. This is worth over £90!

          I'm new to the CSP. How do I join after graduation?
