Our Membership pathways are easy to follow and are specifically designed to support you throughout your entire career. With both an academic and non-academic entry point there are multiple ways for you to join our elite network of property professionals.
The academic entry pathway is our most common pathway into a future in property. Our student memberships are well suited to these incoming professionals with plenty of benefits to help our students get a leg up when it becomes time to start looking for job placements. But don’t leave it to the last minute, find out why you should become a student member today.

We can support you with industry recognised credentials to help you continue to develop your career and be recognised for your skills and experience.
