Graduate Membership

If you are just starting out as a professional and building on your knowledge and skills through training, practical experience and supervision, Graduate membership could be for you. If you have a relevant ecological or environmental management degree joining CIEEM as a Graduate member means we will help support your professional development at this exciting point in your career. You will already have an understanding of terminology and concepts, and some experience of practical application and this combined with your academic experience means you’re in a position to start making a real difference for the benefit of nature and society. 

If that sounds like you, read on to explore the benefits of Graduate membership.
