Student Membership is available for both full-time students and those people who are working and studying in a part-time capacity.

CDAA will seek evidence annually of ongoing studies in the career development discipline in order for Student Members to retain that category of membership.

Student Membership Criteria

Student Member applicants will evidence:

  • Enrolment as a student at a recognised learning institution,
  • Status of full-time or part-time study, and
  • Study in career development or an academic discipline related to the field of career development.
  • Individuals who are studying in academic disciplines not in this list, but considered by the applicant to be related to career development, may have their application considered by the CDAA Membership Committee as an extraordinary case.
