Student membership is for those studying for an applicable qualification.


To become a Student member of the CQI you must be enrolled on a CQI accredited programme of study.

Not all courses are eligible. We currently only accept:

  • CQI Accredited higher education programmes

  • CQI supported trailblazer apprenticeships

Please note: due to their short duration CQI|IRCA auditor training courses are not acceptable for CQI Student applications. 

During the application process you will be asked to provide details of your course of study. You will be asked to include your student ID number so that we can verify that you are enrolled on the course.

Subscriptions fees

All CQI memberships run from 1st of January to 31st December each year. If you join during the year you will pay a reduced fee reflecting how much of the membership year remains.  

In the final quarter of the year new members pay for the remainder of the year and the full fee for the following year.
