Academic Member Application

Please read the APBC’s Code of Practice and be sure you agree before continuing. Click Here

To apply for Academic Membership you will need to supply a digital copy of:

  • Your MSc/ Higher Level qualifications
  • Proof of position / Copy of Research Paper

Please have a digital copy of both these documents ready to upload after you have filled in your details.

Once we have received your complete application, it will be taken to the next membership committee meeting. This committee meets monthly. So please be aware that, depending on when you submit, it may be 4-5 weeks before you are notified as to the success or otherwise of your application. If you are not successful, we will advise you of what you need to do to become a successful candidate.

Please DO NOT send payment until your membership application has been approved. We will Invoice you.

Please send any queries via email to: info@apbc.org.uk
