Student Membership

AuSPEN offers students enrolled in undergraduate and postgraduate studies or research programs a discounted 12-month student membership of $125.00.

Students may be students of any of AuSPEN’s core disciplines: Medicine, Surgery, Dietetics, Pharmacy and Nursing, or Postgraduate students with a research topic relevant to clinical nutrition.

Student membership option is available for full-time tertiary students enrolled at a university and studying towards their initial qualification in their profession/discipline (eg dietetics, nursing, medicine, pharmacy, science) and are not earning a health professional or scientist salary. This includes students completing undergraduate or entry-level Masters programs for the above listed health professions and science graduates engaged in full-time PhD or MSc (or equivalent).

Registered/accredited clinicians who are salary earners and who are undertaking part-time post-qualification studies are not eligible for the student membership rate.

Evidence of student enrolment must be submitted to AuSPEN Secretary ( at time of joining or renewing AuSPEN membership.

Transfer of Membership

Transfers of membership from one individual to another is not possible as per the AuSPEN Constitution. This stipulates that all new applicants must be approved by AuSPEN Council at the next Council meeting and by the membership at large at the next Annual General Meeting. Transfer of membership bypasses this process and is hence disallowed by the Constitution of AuSPEN Society.
