Grades of Membership
Student Membership is mandatory for all students that are studying for a CTH qualification at Level 3 and above. However, it is optional for students studying at qualifications below Level 3.
Student Membership gives students access to CTH’s Membership website (CTH Members) and have access to text books, industry articles as well as other study materials. Student Members are also able to create discussion groups and access jobs section in the website.
Further, student members also receive CTH’s Student Membership Card, Membership Certificate as well as Membership Pin badge as a part of your membership.
Registered Student: Individuals studying qualifications below Level 3 are categorised as Registered Students. This is a non-membership based registration, recognising that students studying qualifications up to Level 2 do not necessarily require access to Membership benefits.

Students can upgrade their status from Registered Student to Student Member at any time by paying the applicable fee to CTH.
