Graduate affiliate membership

Access the resources you need to help make your transition from university into your career as a new graduate physio as smooth as possible.


There are so many things to consider when you graduate, which is why we wanted to give you one less thing to think about, and that's your CSP membership. As a CSP student/associate student member, you’re automatically transferred to our graduate affiliate category once your course finishes.

This membership is perfect for:

  • those who are transitioning from their studies into the world of work and are waiting for their HCPC registration
  • those who have decided to defer their studies but still want to access the benefits of a CSP membership or
  • international students who are abroad and not registered with the HCPC. 

Are you an international graduate planning to practice in the UK? Read more about the visa requirements to work in the UK.

What’s not included?

Already working and have your HCPC PIN? Now is the time to Get Chartered.

As a graduate affiliate member, you won’t have access to professional liability insurance or insurance while you're on student placements. You also won’t have access to workplace support and legal advice. So if you’re already working and have your HCPC PIN, now is the time to Get Chartered.

If you’ve decided to continue your studies it’s important to let us know so that we can reflect this in your membership to make sure that you are suitably covered during your studies. Please get in touch with our Enquiries Team by calling 020 7306 6666 or emailing enquiries@csp.org.uk.

At the end of your course, we’ll automatically transfer you to our graduate affiliate membership and give you 12 months free of this membership while you’re deciding on your next steps.

Don’t worry, we’ll let you know when your first 12 months of free graduate affiliate membership is coming to an end.
