Once documents and payment (online via MyBCS) have been received, an assessor will review your submission and you will receive an email with the outcome in approximately 6-8 weeks.


If the decision is determined as unsuccessful you will be awarded MBCS or FBCS and a refund of the difference in fees will be arranged.


Alternatively, if you do not wish to re-join the register of Chartered IT Professionals, we can reinstate your membership at your previous grade of MBCS or FBCS.  Please contact us to begin the process.


If your membership lapsed before 01 January 2016

For lapsed membership and registrations before 2016, we're welcoming our past members back through the traditional joining application.  Please visit the following link to complete your application when ready.
