Before going further please be sure you are joining the correct category of membership.
Student membership is only open to student paramedics who are studying a course leading to eligibility to apply for registration with the HCPC.
To confirm that you are studying on a course that qualifies you for Student Membership you need to check the HCPC list of approved pre-registration paramedic courses here.
If your course is on this approved list, then Student Membership is the correct category for you.
